Are you ready to unleash your creativity and transform ordinary round hay bales into captivating works of art? Look no further! We are thrilled to announce the Round Hay Bale Decorating Contest, an exciting event that brings together individuals, groups, companies, and non-profit organizations to celebrate artistic expression and the beauty of the countryside. Get ready to showcase your skills, support a charitable cause, and have a whole lot of fun!

Fuel Your Imagination
Imagine a blank canvas, but instead of paint, you have round hay bales waiting to be transformed. The possibilities are endless! Whether you’re an amateur artist, a seasoned professional, or simply someone with a passion for creativity, this contest is for you. Let your imagination run wild as you bring your chosen theme to life using paint, fabric, accessories, and decorations.

Community Engagement
The Round Hay Bale Decorating Contest is not just about creating stunning displays—it’s about fostering community engagement. Join forces with like-minded individuals, groups, or organizations and work together to make a lasting impact. The contest provides a platform to showcase local talent, forge new connections, and build a sense of camaraderie within the community.

Support a Charitable Cause
Beyond the thrill of artistic expression, the contest gives you the opportunity to make a difference. Participants will have the chance to choose a charity close to their hearts and raise money through public voting. Spectators and visitors can show their appreciation for your masterpiece by dropping donations into designated boxes. The display with the highest amount collected will secure a monetary prize, but the true victory lies in the impact your contribution will have on those in need.

Guidelines and Prizes
To ensure fairness and safety, we have established a set of guidelines for participants to follow. From theme selection to display setup, everything is designed to provide a level playing field for all. Tractor assistance will be available during the initial setup period to help position the hay bales. Additionally, a panel of judges will evaluate the entries based on creativity, adherence to the theme, visual appeal, craftsmanship, and overall execution.

Prizes await those who go above and beyond in their creations. The first-place winner will be awarded $500, the second-place winner will receive $400, and the third-place winner will take home $300. These monetary prizes are in addition to the funds collected for the chosen charities, making the impact even more substantial.

Save the Date
Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 26, 2023, as the day you let your creativity shine. Set up and decorating will take place between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, giving you ample time to bring your vision to life. Don’t forget to enlist the support of friends, family, and fellow art enthusiasts to help you create a display that will leave a lasting impression.
