BrentwoodPark annual Pumpkin Carving Contest

This year’s contest will be conducted as follows: 

Pumpkins will be carved at home and brought to school on Wednesday, October 30th, no later than 9:00am. Pumpkins will be displayed in the front hall, and the judging will take place on Wednesday, October 30th at 3:00pm. They will be lit and displayed on the stage for the school to view on Thursday 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 Thursday October 31st at 3:00pm.  Prior to the announcement of winning entries, students will be called down to the gym to come pick up their pumpkins.

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 withyour pumpkin so that it can be safely lit.
