Jann Mirkov, Executive Director of Main Street: Greeneville, had the following to say in a news release:

"What fun we are having with this contest. Contestants have really taken the time and effort to make some incredible displays.

"Word spreads like crazy, and people have called asking how to vote. Many have said how seeing all the scarecrows has made them smile and rethink their own youth.

"I can tell you one thing -- the adults have had a grand time with this. I talked to one of the entrants, and they are already planning for next year's contest. Comments like that tell me we are on to something.

"I would like nothing better than to see a scarecrow at each of the 185-plus properties within the district. Something tells me it won't take long to get there.

"I encourage everyone to come downtown and take a look around for themselves, and don't forget to vote."
