Pumpkin Carving Contest

October 14 - 31 (All Ages)

Two carved and grinning pumkins sitting on a table.

Carve out a little time for yourself or with your family and friends and create a one-of-a-kind pumpkin! Make it funny, make it scary, but most of all, make it yours. Send us a photo of your creation between October 14 and October 31 for a chance to win a prize.

Register and enter your photo submission online.

Submissions will be judged in the following categories: Child/Family (Ages 12 and under), Teen (Ages 13-17), and Adult (Ages 18+). Once you have registered, select your age category under “Missions” to submit your photo.

All contest participants are encouraged to observe the following safety tips:

  • Use a proper pumpkin carving kit and supply older children with age-appropriate carving tools.
  • Work in a well-lit area. Keep hands and carving tools clean and dry.
