Edwards Primary School Scarecrow Festival

Wednesday 20th October 2021

Open to the public from 4 pm


"A festival that will amuse & amaze in equal measure"

Scarecrows have been part of our farming heritage forever and a day.  Their practical purpose in the fields is to scare birds which might otherwise eat the seeds or damage young crops.  

For our Autumn fundraiser this year we are asking each family to design a scarecrow and pay £5 to have it entered into a competition.  The scarecrows will be imaginative creations from Castlederg and the surrounding areas based on the theme

"My favorite character from Beano to the Bible in film and TV too!"

All proceeds from the festival will go towards updating our ICT resources.

The categories for judging are:-

Most Amazing

Most Amusing

Most Original

The Scariest

The scarecrow festival will provide an opportunity for all family members and friends to creatively work together designing and making their scarecrow.

Let your creative juices flow!
