Scarecrows of all types line the lawn at the Douglas County Historical Society in Alexandria for its annual Scarecrow Contest. Voting for the contest runs through Oct. 30. To vote for your favorite scarecrow, contact the historical society by phone, in person, by email or through their website at dchsmn.org. Winners will be announced on Halloween. The entry fees of $5 per scarecrow will be split among first, second and third place winners.
