The city of Dayville held its fifth annual Scarecrow Contest, sprucing up the town with 16 creative entries.

“It’s always fun to have these ‘new residents’ join us for a month or so,” said city recorder Ruthie Moore.

This year, the scarecrows were up for three weeks, beginning with the town’s Oct. 3 Fall Festival potluck.

Lyndee Billar of The Fish House Inn had the top-placing creation, a hunter/fisherman.

Dayville teacher Carrie Sullivan and her third- through fifth-grade students won second place.

Voted with the most creative scarecrow was Connie Moore for a horse, which had a skull for a head with reflector eyes.

Rachael Tobin won the potluck award for her rodeo scarecrow.

Winners received candy scarecrow necklaces, with a small container of caramel dip for the head, Cracker Jacks for the body and miniature candy legs and pepperoni sticks for the arms.

“They definitely liven up our town, and people get a kick out of it,” Moore said.
