Granite United Way to host scarecrow contest at RiverFire

Granite United Way will once again be hosting its annual scarecrow contest during RiverFire this year on Oct. 14. Residents and families are encouraged to use “Live United” T-shirts in their scarecrow designs. The winner of the contest will receive a Kindle Fire.

“This is a great opportunity to have some fun and add to the excitement of RiverFire,” said Laura Boucher, Granite United Way’s Northern New Hampshire Area Manager. “One of Granite United Way’s impact focus areas is education and we are excited to promote reading in our community.”

T-shirts and scarecrow contest registration sheets can be picked up on Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Service Credit Union Heritage Park or at the Granite United Way Office, 961 Main St., Berlin.

All scarecrows must be delivered and registered before or at RiverFire by 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14, to the Granite United Way booth. Judging will take place during RiverFire and the winner will receive a Kindle Fire. Winners do not need to be present to win.
