Halloween may be a month away, but ArtsQuest is getting a jump start on the fun.

ArtsQuest unveiled the first Steelstacks scarecrow competition and exhibit Monday.

Crafters were invited to create a straw man and enter it in different categories to win cash prizes.

The public can check out the scarecrows and cast their votes until Oct. 13. The winners will be announced on Oct. 14, and the display will be up through the end of October.
