Scarecrow Ideas: The Best of MOTHER's Great American Scarecrow Contest

If you're looking for scarecrow ideas, be sure to check out these photos of the winning entries in the MOTHER EARTH NEWS scarecrow contest for inspiration.


| July/August 1989


Last summer we invited readers to enter MOTHER's Great American Scarecrow Contest—and the photos came pouring in! With so many imaginative and resourceful scarecrow ideas on display, it was tough to pick the "best" from so many wonderful creations, but we finally narrowed the field to the 10 winners you see here.  

Each will receive $50 and one of the following prizes, to be selected by random drawing: Olympyk chain saw, Garden Way cart, Snapper blower, Johnson fishing products package (includes Minn Kota electric trolling motor, Johnson fishing reel and Little Stinker Bait Company catfishing kit)—three to be awarded, Poulan Weedeater XT50 lawn trimmer, Daisy Red Ryder Classic BB gun, Zebco Classic rod and reel, and Coleman smoker/grill. Congratulations to our winners!
