The Swain County Public Schools Foundation is looking for people to participate in its first-ever Scarecrow Festival.

The entrance fee is $25 per scarecrow. All proceeds go directly into the Swain County Public Schools Foundation, which is responsible for rewarding scholarships for our Swain County students and grants for our teachers.

Entry forms can be picked up at the Swain County Chamber of Commerce or at the Swain County Public School Central Office. Attach a check made out to Swain County Public Schools Foundation and send it to: Laura Holden, Swain County School District, PO Box 2340, Bryson City, NC 28713 by Oct. 1.
