Please contact Anne Young at know if you wish to submit a pumpkin or a craft, all we need to know is:

Your name and contact information
Your department’s name

Description of any incentives bundled with your pumpkin and/or craft
Here are a few useful pumpkin carving tips:

Pumpkins can be painted, decorated, or carved
We accept any type of pumpkin or gourde (artificial craft pumpkins accepted)
Enhancements/bundles are encouraged (a pumpkin may include gift a certificate or other items)
If you are carving a pumpkin, the fresher the better. (Tip: it helps to slow decay if you wash the insides with a mild bleach solution and coat the cut edges with petroleum jelly)
I’ve attached a few photos from previous years so that you can see some of the wonderful creations!
Lastly, be sure to drop by the Registrar’s Office between October 28th thru 31st to see some of the amazing pumpkins and crafts, and to join in on the silent auction fun!
