The Oxford Lions Club has announced the beginning of its fourth annual Giant Pumpkin Contest. The contest that is open to all Oxford students grades K-12 requires that pumpkins must be grown in Oxford. Cash prizes will be awarded of $100 for first prize, $50 for second and $25 for third. Participants must pre-register and can sign up at their local school or at the Oxford Public Library.
Seeds donated by the Oxford Lions are available at the Oxford Public Library, on a first come, first serve basis, or contestants may use their own seeds. Judging and prizes will be awarded in late September.
