More About Halloween Contests!

Art Contest for Grades 2-4: Sanford Recreation is sponsoring a Halloween art contest, open to kids in grades 2-4. The theme is “Best Depiction of Halloween” and you may use pencils, pens, paint, crayon or chalk. No clip art from magazines, please.

Entries must be matted on construction paper no larger than 12″ x 18″ with name, grade and school in lower right corner of mat. (If using a black mat, write the info on a white label or piece of paper affixed to the entry.) Drop entries off at your school’s front office by Tuesday morning, October 19, or bring to the Recreation office at City Hall.

All entries will be displayed on the walls at City Hall. Rotary Club members will judge the entries, and the best ones will be painted on merchant’s windows throughout Sanford. Window painting will take place the weekend of October 22-24. Window paintings will be judged by local families, and winners of both drawing and painting contests will be announced Thursday, October 28. There is no fee to enter, so jump right in and get creative!

Yard Decorating Contest: The Paranormal Five have decided to let the community vote in their 2nd Annual Halloween Yard Decorating Contest. Everyone who enters the contest will have their location on a map, and people will follow the map and vote along the way. Enter here to get on the map and possibly win some cool prizes! The $10 entry fees will be donated to the Baby Blessings program at St. George’s Episcopal Church, which helps families in need with baby/toddler necessities.
