PHCA Monument Committee announces Bird House Decorating Contest

The PHCA Monument Committee thought it would be fun to decorate the community tree with bird houses for the spring and summer.  They then thought it would be even more fun to have a contest for best design of a bird house.  All birdhouses will be kept by the PHCA and hung on our community tree, hopefully for many years to come.  So, we invite you to participate in our first-ever Polish Hill Bird House Decorating Contest!

The entry rules are rather simple:

The bird house is to be no larger than 12″ x 12″ with a hook attached for hanging  on the tree

The “unfinished” bird house can be either built or bought; you decorate the bird house.

Enter as often as you like.  A label with your name, address, phone number and email address is to be affixed to the bottom of the birdhouse, which will be removed after the contest.

All bird houses must be delivered to the PHCA office by March 10, 2012.

There will be three modest cash prizes:  $25 – 1st prize; $15 – 2nd prize; $7 – 3rd prize.  There will also be a children’s category, up to age 11, and the winner will receive two passes to the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.

Bird houses will be judged by the PHCA Monument Committee and the winners will be announced at the Community meeting on April 3rd and on Blogski.
