From a past participant:
"My Jack-Creeper themed scarecrow was pretty much the best thing I’ve ever made. It crushed the closest competition (BYU versus Utah football, and the climber hanging from a tree). Mine will be the scarecrow to beat this year." –Jesse, Scarecrow Festival People’s Choice Runner Up, 2015
