The Tarkio Chamber of Commerce recently sponsored their annual Scarecrow Contest in celebration of the Halloween/Harvest season. Sixteen scarecrows were spotted around town. This year’s creativeness was spectacular and choosing winners was difficult!

Four scarecrows were selected as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in the residence competition. They were: 1st – Sally Moore; 2nd – Dustin and Jessica Lambertsen; and 3rd (tie) – Terry Carlisle and Mary McAdams.

The business scarecrows were a hoot! Main Street looked very festive with some of the creations lining the street. Choosing the 1st place scarecrow was not a tough decision, as everyone was talking about the creepy clown at Tarkio City Hall! But selecting a 2nd and 3rd place scarecrow was tough as there were actually three that were equal in hilarity/creativeness. So in a 3-way tie for 2nd place are: Enel/Vestas, Colfax Farmers Mutual Insurance, and the Flower Mill.

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all who participated! Get your thinking caps ready for next year’s competition!
