Roughly 70 students gathered in an art room at Newtown Middle School on Tuesday, September 8, to learn more about entering into the 19th annual My Favorite Scarecrow Sculpture Contest.
Each year NMS eighth grade students are challenged to design and create a “larger than life” scarecrow that can withstand the elements. Students and community members cast their votes for their favorites in dollar donations, with the money generated split among the three top vote-getters and donated to the charity of the winners’ choice.
