Your entry must be able to live outdoors for the 5 week run of Autumn in the Botanic Garden. Please keep Oklahoma weather in mind when designing and engineering (STEM!) your scarecrow. Attach everything firmly, and avoid using materials and items that may blow away easily or be ruined by rain.

The Garden will handle the placement and installation of your scarecrow. Each entry will be zip-tied to a T-post coming out of a hay bale (T-post and hay bale are provided). Signage will be provided that will list your name (or group or business name) along with your scarecrow's title.

We ask that your scarecrow be family-friendly. People from all walks of life and of all ages visit the Garden, and we want everyone to have a pleasant experience. Please use your best judgement, and keep political and religious messaging out of your scarecrow entry.
