Iana Sinkutch of Bliss and Whimsy Original Artwork on Main Street, was awarded both the People's Choice (popular vote) award, and the Judges' Choice Award during this year's Scarecrow Stroll. Both awards included a cash award for the business. More than 260 people voted for her "Straw Ross" scarecrow in the People's Choice Award competition.
Additionally, a panel of eight individuals were involved in the selection of the Judge's Choice Award. Each judge was asked to choose his or her top three scarecrows and the panel majority chose Straw Ross as well. Honorable Mentions were also given to Somewhere in Time and Charlie Boy Designs for their scarecrows. This contest, sponsored by Downtown Network Heber Springs, serves to decorate the downtown commercial district each year in Fall.
