Pumpkin Carving Contest

Once again Brentwood Park is having our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. 

This year’s contest will be conducted as follows:

Pumpkins will be carved at home and brought to school on Monday, October 30th, no later than 9:00am.

Pumpkins will be displayed in the front hall, and the judging will take place on Monday, October 30th at 3:00pm. They will be lit and displayed on the stage for the school to view on Tuesday at 1:00pm. A battery operated candle must be provided by the student in order for the pumpkin to be lit. All pumpkins must be taken home on Tuesday October 31st at 3:00pm. (Unfortunately, pumpkins not picked up will be thrown away.)

There will be 8 prizes awarded to primary students’ entries and 8 prizes for intermediate students’ entries. The judging committee look forward to seeing original and interesting pumpkins!
Caution – Pumpkins tend to spoil very quickly, and as a result it would be better if the carving of your pumpkin could be done as close to the entry day as possible.

A reminder to enclose a battery operated tea light with your pumpkin so that it can be safely lit.
