Pumpkin Carving and Decorating Contests


Are you the pumpkin carving master of the neighborhood? There are opportunities for you to win big prizes with your skills. Here are a few national contests along with some tips on how to find local ones.

Pumpkin Masters: This annual contest is sponsored by the same people that sell the pumpking carving kits you see at Halloween that include a stencil book and small hand carving tools that are safe enough for kids. The grand prize is $5,000! To enter, you need to carve your design and post a picture of it on the Pumpkin Masters Facebook page. Other categories have a prize value of $1,000 each. Learn more at the contest page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pumpkin-Masters/212022202187380?sk=app_1478139035806591.

This Old House: The website for This Old House, the popular, long-running, home-improvement series is holding a carving contest for a chance to win a $500 gift card. Learn more at thisoldhouse.com/pumpkins.

Elvis Pumpkin Decorating/Carving Contest: Fans of the King will get a kick out of this one. Carve or decorate a pumpkin with an Elvis theme and you can win $100 worth of merchandise from Graceland.com. Learn more at http://www.graceland.com/news/details/celebrate-halloween-with-an-elvis-pumpkin-decorating-contest/7542/.

Tips for Finding Local Contests

Some local places to look for contests include haunted house attractions, cider orchards, county fairground fall and pumpkin festivals. Even if an event isn't pumpkin themed, it may have a carving contest if it's being held around the Halloween holiday. Your child may be able to enter a contest at school. Local businesses have promotional carving contests that combine logos such as from sports teams and other regional themes with pumpking carving. Television station websites will have info on upcoming carving contests sponsored by local businesses. The website Pumpkin Patches and More (http://www.pumpkinpatchesandmore.org/) is a another resource for finding anything to do with pumpkins and Halloween events in your region.

Get your carving tools, have fun carving and good luck!
