Children across Yarriamback Shire have taken the opportunity to make scarecrows as part of a school holiday activity program.
Yarriambiack Shire Council Community Development team, working with Warracknabeal Creative Circuit and Warracknabeal Community Garden, prepared a program of scheduled and self-paced activities.

The program was designed to meet the needs of children across a variety of ages during the holiday break.
There were eight scarecrow entries with Gabe and Dawson Sibley winning best entry overall and a $50 ‘Jono and Johno’ gift voucher.
Warracknabeal Community Garden committee members and municipal youth-impact officer Justin Knorpp judged the scarecrows and came up with different categories.
Every entrant received a prize. There were three $20 cash prizes from the Community Garden Committee and four $20 shop-local vouchers from Yarriambiack Shire Council.
Other award winners were: Cutest, Lilly Nuske; most colourful, Michelle Nuske; scariest, Zoe Nuske; prettiest and best dressed, Ava Penny; Covid-safe, Brax and Nan Cox; biggest, Fraser Penny; and smallest, River and Nan Cox.
