Take Selfies with Scarecrows to Earn Big Cash Prizes!

Grab your phone and get ready to explore Eureka, Missouri and earn some BIG cash prizes!

Whether you visit uptown Eureka, along Fifth Street, parallel to I-44, or stroll down Central Avenue in old town Eureka, Scarecrows are “everywhere!” 


Though most of the scarecrows are stuffed with straw in the traditional fashion, they may as well be stuffed with money because when you post a selfie with them on Facebook, you’re that much closer to grabbing cash!

This fun event is designed with everyone in mind. You can participate individually, as a family, or as a group!

Each selfie with a registered scarecrow earns ONE entry – which means you could have over 200 chances to win if you pose and submit with every registered scarecrow!

How to Play Eureka’s Great Scarecrow Hunt - Official Rules

Follow @ScarecrowFestivalEurekaMO to stay up to date!

  • Your Facebook post must be set to public.

  • Take a selfie with a registered scarecrow while visiting the Eureka Scarecrow Festival.

  • Post each photo separately on your personal Facebook page between October 1-31. 

  • In each Facebook post, you must tag the Scarecrow Festival page @ScarecrowFestivalEurekaMO AND the Company or organization displaying the scarecrow. 

    • 1 Selfie with tags = 1 Entry

  • If no company or organization is listed on the scarecrow, tagging the scarecrow festival is the only tag necessary.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Selfies (photos) must be unique with a different registered scarecrow and tagged properly to count as an entry. Duplicate entries of the same photo (for those in group photos) will not be counted multiple times unless each person in the photo adds it to their personal profile and tags it properly. (You can't simply share someone else's post). 

  • Please Note: An individual participant may only win one of the three prizes.

On November 1st we will draw three winners from all entries.

The more selfies you take the more entries you will have. The drawing will be streamed Live on the Eureka Scarecrow Festival Facebook page.
