The event mascot, the Scarecrow will again play a big part in this year’s event as Myattsfield Vineyards will be running the very popular “create your own” scarecrow competition which encourages local community participation.
Aimed at raising awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy W.A., competition entrants pay an entry fee of $5 (which is donated to MDWA), scarecrows will be displayed in the new MDWA Scarecrow Walk at MyattsField Vineyard.
There are three cash prizes:
- First place: $500.00
- People Choice Award: $300.00
- School Prize: $300
The scarecrows will be judged at 3 pm on Sunday the 6th of May.
Harvest Festival visitors will also be asked to make a gold coin donation to MDWA in order to enter the MDWA Scarecrow Walk and look at the entries.
