Two Spooktacular DI Halloween Contests

By: Tina Shaffer

Our Halloween contest is back! However, this time, we’re hosting two separate contests—one for kids and teens (Pumpkin Decorating Contest), and one for adults (Tech-Or-Treat). That’s right parents, volunteers, and alumni! And don’t think we’re going to make this an easy one. What fun would that be?

Please be sure to read the official contest rules below before entering your design.

 

Pumpkin Decorating Contest 

Our Pumpkin Decorating Contest is open to all kids and teens 18 years of age or younger. For this Contest, entrants must decorate and/or accessorize a pumpkin (real or artificial). You can paint, glue, bedazzle, and/or duct tape your pumpkin. However, you must not carve or damage your pumpkin in any way.

The Top 5 designs that receive the most votes will be appraised by Destination Imagination, Inc. staff members. One winner will be selected and Deluxe Art Creativity Set and a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

The deadline to enter the contest is November 3, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

How to Enter

  1.     Choose a name for your pumpkin design.
  2.     Take a photo of your pumpkin design and upload it to our Pumpkin Decorating Contest page.
  3.     Tell your friends and family to go to the contest page and vote for your design.

 


 

Tech-Or-Treat Pumpkin Carving Contest

Our Tech-Or-Treat Pumpkin Carving Contest is open to all adults ages 19 or older. Entrants must design a pumpkin that incorporates Technical Methods to complete a task. For this contest, “Technical Methods” refers to the use of principles in fields such as chemistry, computer science, electricity, hydraulics, mathematics, mechanical engineering, physics, or structural engineering. Other technical fields are also acceptable.

Entrants must create their design using at least one real pumpkin. You may also include other materials in your design.

The Top 5 designs that receive the most votes will be appraised by Destination Imagination, Inc. staff members. One contest winner will be selected and will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

The deadline to enter the contest is November 3, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
