Voting Opens for ABB Scarecrow Contest

By Julie Perine on October 12, 2021 via

Voting is open for the Associated Businesses of Bridgeport Scarecrow Display. Created by city businesses, the whimsical characters are lining the Main Street corridor, welcoming motorists and foot travelers alike.
 A gallery featuring all scarecrows is below. Votes can be cast at the poll located to the right of this and every Connect-Bridgeport page.
The scarecrow receiving the most votes will be awarded the ABB's traveling plaque which can be displayed at the business until next year's contest. Taking the honor in 2020 was Hearing Solution Services’ rendition of SpongeBob.
Heading up this year's Scarecrow Display - the 11th annual - is Hilary Gonzalez, Real Estate & Closing Manager for Kaufman Realty & Auctions WV. It is her third year to chair the popular fall activity. 
"This has been a great experience for me to see the excitement of the participants. I think this event is just all-around fun for not only the Associated Businesses of Bridgeport, but the community as well," she said. "It also gives the small businesses a fun and creative way to advertise."
Voting starts today, Tuesday, Oct. 12 and run through Oct. 29. To vote, you must be a registered user with Connect-Bridgeport. To create an account, simply choose the "Sign Up" tab on the top of the page. Each registered user may cast just one vote. 
The winning scarecrow will be announced Sunday, Oct. 31 on Connect-Bridgeport and the plaque will be awarded at a later date.
In addition to this people’s choice award, a winner will be chosen by a panel of judges comprised of non-partial ABB members.
With the exception of the two winning scarecrows, displays must be removed by Tuesday, Nov. 2. The winning scarecrow will remain on display through Friday, Nov. 5.
