And the Winner Is . . .

No, it wasn't Elizabeth the Mill Girl, Clocktower Place's entry in the 4th Annual Downtown Nashua (NH) Scarecrow Competition this fall (at left below). Elizabeth tallied under 100 votes. (Yes, there were some voting issues where votes didn't seem to register. 😟)

The winning entry (above left) WON by a landfall and was created by the Infant School of Jesus School, a private K-6th grade school, which mustered over 1,200 votes, outdistancing all other entries. The school really knows how to get the votes out as this wasn't a first-time win. Kudos to the winner !

BIG thanks to fellow bloggers who voted for Elizabeth (yes, there were some issues with votes not registering). There's no prizes, just braggin' rights. The scarecrows are a colorful fall addition to the streets of downtown Nashua, NH. 

(For those who may not know it, Clocktower Place is a former textile mill we live in here in downtown Nashua, NH. In the mid to late 1800s, it manufactured blankets and the young women who worked there were called "mill girls.")

I did vote a few times but it didn't always appear to register. A joy the children win though isn't it.

Well, I still think yours was better but you can’t beat a school for getting out the votes from parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins!

Nice try regardless of the outcome. It's hard to beat a school of kids. It was fun for everyone.

I voted only twice. Should have voted more. :)

Alas! Yours was good.

Clearly Online voting is never going to win for the best; only for the most persistent. And it's really hard to compete with a school with an active PTSO. Count me among those who had problems voting some days. There was a definite glitch.

I think the school has an edge as they can get all the kids families to post. But it's fun seeing these scarecrows. We don't have any competitions around here but some people have them out and it's fun seeing the clever ideas they have. Happy Wednesday. Hugs-Erika

Congrats to the winner. It's too bad your entry didn't win, but I hope you had fun with it just the same.
