2018 Categories and Classes

Here are all the great categories you can enter at the 2019 Carnival.  For the 2019 Carnival we have one new class and a special prize for schools. We have added a family class for the creations category, we know a lot of families work together to make their pumpkin creations.

All winners receive certificates, placed children’s entries also receive a ribbon and all 1st places receive a prize.

New School Prize

And to help encourage Schools to take part in more categories we are pleased to announce a special prize sponsored by Leah Gordon, Lodge Real Estate, Rototuna. 

We have $400 worth of prezzy cards to give to the top two schools that get the most points across all categories schools can enter.

1 point for a 3rd place, 2 points for 2nd place, and 3 points for 1st place.  Judging for this special School prize will occur after the Carnival once we have worked out the points.
