New Providence Business is once again hosting the annual Scarecrow Contest, bringing a festive feel to our downtown this fall!  The contest encourages New Providence residents, businesses, civic organizations, school groups, sports teams, and families to build the wildest, cleverest, funniest scarecrows they can imagine (within contest guidelines).  The scarecrows will be on display throughout the downtown to bring the community and businesses together.  It’s a great opportunity to visit our fantastic stores and restaurants – they need your support now more than ever!

Prizes ($150) will be given for the best  entry in each category:

  • Ages 14 and under
  • Ages 15 and over
  • Organizations/Schools
  • Businesses

The competition entries are open to only New Providence residents, businesses, and community organizations, but anyone can vote for their favorite at participating locations.  Please check back for participating locations as this event gets closer.
