Fall is here and there's no better way to celebrate the season than with the tradition of pumpkin carving. Every year Kenyon Noble hosts the Jr. Carpenter Pumpkin Carving Contest, but this year is going to look a little different and be held virtually.

Here's how kids from 0 to 12 yrs old can participate:

  • Carve your pumpkin!
  • Submit photos with your child's first name and last initial, proper hashtag (details below), and submit from Oct. 16 to Oct. 28 before 11:59 pm
  • Winners will be announced by 5 p.m. on October 30th.

Awesome prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age category (0-5 yrs, 6-9 yrs, and 10-12 yrs) from the Belgrade, Bozeman, and Livingston areas. Prizes include Power Beats wireless headphones, Amazon Fire kids tablet, art center easel, Nintendo Switch Lite, Samsung Galaxy tablets, Razor Air Kick scooter, and more!

Pumpkins will be judged based on using the correct hashtags and creativity-- whether they are happy, silly, pretty, or spooky pumpkins. Since pumpkins are judged based on using the correct hashtag be sure to use #KNPumpkinCarvingContest AND the hashtag below that applies to you:
