Students add specially created Squarecrows around the Courthouse
The first ever "Squarecrow" (scarecrows on the square) contest coordinated by the Adair Heritage Association is providing fun and creative outlets leading up to Columbia's annual Downtown Days celebration. No one can remember when there have been so many smiles and positive comments going around.
Yes, there is a contest: See: Ellen Zornes announces Peoples Choice Squarecrow Award with a growing number of Squarecrow entry photo(s), which should be completed no later than Fri 9 Oct 2015. If your entry is not yet posted, we welcome full sized, landscape oriented photos with full captions. - LINDA & ED
The population grew dramatically today as Adair Public School students brought their Squarecrows and added them on the lawn around the Courthouse. On the Greensburg Street side were creations by both Adair County High School and Adair County Elementary School.
For a brief time Adair County Middle School students took charge of the Jamestown Street side of the historic Courthouse and installed their Squarecrows. Principal Alma Rich said participating students were from ACMS Science and Math Classes and also students from the Beta Club who did their Squarecrows as a community service project.
Mrs. Rich said ACMS teacher Mrs. Deb Waddell worked with her Math and RTI (Response to Intervention) Science Classes, students who qualified with high scores. They were challenged to do research on materials such as weatherproofing, what weight was needed so they would stay steady in the wind as well as for creativity.
Any person, family, school, business or organization qualified to enter the contest. Voting will take place at the Retired Teachers booth on the square during Downtown Days. Prize money will be given by the AHA in the amounts of $100, $75 and $25 for first, second and third place winners.
