Pumpkin Decorating Contest (PreK - 5th grade)
The decorated pumpkin contest will take place on the morning of Thursday, October 29. All students in grades PreK - 5th should bring in a pumpkin that reflects THEIR OWN creativity by 8:00 am.

Pumpkins will be judged in 3 categories - funniest, scariest, and most original. Please keep in mind that the students should decorate the pumpkins, not carve them! Winners will receive 10 extra Take-A-Chance tickets and all students will receive a participation ribbon. All pumpkins must be taken home that afternoon.
