The theme is Science!
A panel of judges will select the winners in each category. All pumpkins will be judged based on Design, Theme, Detail, Creativity and Originality. Judges will view the pumpkins from 3 to 4 p.m. and announce the winners at a special awards ceremony after the contest and prizes awarded.
