Pumpkin Carving Contest

By on October 9, 2020

Currituck County Center of NC Cooperative Extension | Fall Family Fun

The weather has finally cooled and fall is here! It’s time to go out and find the biggest pumpkin you can to decorate. While you’re decorating for the fall season, consider entering your masterpiece in one of N.C. Cooperative Extension Currituck County Center’s Fall Family Fun contests. If you’re decorating your yard or porch enter our Festive Fall Arrangement Contest. Rules and sign up for that can be found on our Fair page. If you’re carving or decorating your pumpkin, enter our Pumpkin Carving Contest. If you’re really excited about fall, why not enter both?

The rules for the Pumpkin Carving Contest are simple, first, register for our Fall Family Fun event through eventbrite. This will give you reminders when we post our videos, articles, and more! After registering, sign up for the contest through our entry form found at go.ncsu.edu/pumpkincarvingcontest.

The form will ask for your contact information, demographic information, pumpkin design name and a photo of your masterpiece. Rules for the contest designs are listed below:


  1. Pumpkins must be decorated/carved by the person submitting the entry form.
  2. Pumpkins can be decorated, carved, or shaved.
  3. Stencil designs can be submitted, but credit the stencil design name/maker.
  4. Only pumpkins can be submitted, no other vegetables/fruit/objects.
  5. Offensive entries will be disqualified.

Entries will be accepted until 8:00 a.m. on Oct. 30th. Voting will then open for one week to allow Fall Family Fun participants to vote on their favorite pumpkin carving design. Voting will end on Nov. 9th, and winners will be announced on Nov. 10th on our VR main stage event at Noon.
