Dreamworld's Scarecrow Project

Dreamworld Scarecrow Project is a school community-focused scarecrow building competition that requires entrants to build a scarecrow to a designated theme. The theme for 2024 is “Wildlife Conservation: Ecology of threatened and endangered species”.

We're asking Primary School Classrooms across Australia to participate by designing and creating a scarecrow – some local entries will be on display at Dreamworld in our Scarecrow Lane for our guests to appreciate during Spring County Fair.

Scarecrows are independently judged on 4 criteria: Durability, Innovation of Materials & Sustainability, Design Creativity and Theme Representation. A “People’s Choice” award will be presented to the most popular submission as decided by the public online who have the chance to win one of 2 $500 VISA gift cards! 

Keep an eye out for when you can vote in the 2024 competition!
