UPDATED: Take a Virtual Tour of Hartland's Scarecrows
Heritage Day contest received 20 entries.
There might be a few more late entries but as of Thursday there were almost 20 in the first-ever Hartland Heritage Day scacecrow contest.
Themes ranged from historical (Ben Franklin at Waldenwoods) and poignant (remembering Sept. 11 at the Hartland Deerfield Fire Authority) to focusing what the business does in a creative way (tooth fairy at Hartland Smilemakers).
These past seven days at Hartland Patch we told the story behind all these scarecrows, including our own. And to help you vote in the contest, we'd thought we'd put them all in one place with photos and links. We also have our own informal poll. (See below).
How to vote
If you'd like to vote in the heritage day scarecrow contest, you can vote at Cromaine District Library, the Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Votes must be received by Friday, Sept. 16. Winners will be announced around noon at the chamber Saturday, Sept. 17, on heritage day. Vote categories are: most interesting, most historic or most colorful.

You can enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card to Meijer by being the first to tell us on our website where Hartland Patch's scarecrow is today. On Thursday, he was at the main branch of the Cromaine District Library and Alex Cushing correctly pointed it out, so he's the sixth in the drawing. There is one more chance to get in.
