Pretty Please Vote For My Scarecrows!

Our school did a joint project/competition with Ward Centers in Hawai'i to create scarecrows for twenty of their stores. The top teams win scholarships and the public, yes you, can vote (link below).

My team had to create a scarecrow that represents The Seasonal Store and promotes their products, so we made four mini scarecrows for each season. First, we chose the costumes and accessories. Then, we looked for masks that were plain and the only ones were Bill, Hillary and Obama, so we used those and randomly paired it with the costumes. Then we found another blank mask and paired it with a Dora the Explorer wig.

It was weird how it all came together and by pure coincidence tied in with the presidential election!

Spring we had the blank face mask and Dora wig in a kimono = Sarah Palin
Summer we had Hillary as a cheerleader = Hillary cheering on Obama
Fall we had Obama dressed as Superman with a turkey on his head = Obama saves the day
Winter we had Bill aka John McCain as Santa Claus dressed up as Zorro = Older man saves the day

So, now everyone that's anywhere can vote! You can vote once a day and you're entered to win a $150 Ward Gift Card or Dinner for Two for a Year. Winning teams get scholarship money, which I badly need!

Vote for #9 The Seasonal Store! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks sooo much for voting eelie! And as for the turkey on his head, we chose that before we chose the Obama mask... it was just something funny to add to the fall/Thanksgiving theme. And some people found it funny and others found it offensive and didn't get it. It was all in FUN! :)
