The Kiwanis Club of Montclair is hosting a free virtual pumpkin-carving contest.

The contest is for kids in kindergarten though 12th grade. One entry is allowed per child.

Entrants should take a photo of their carved jack-o’-lanterns and submit it through the Club’s google form by Oct. 28 at 11:59 p.m.  The form must be filled out by a parent or legal guardian.

Winners will be notified by phone on Oct. 31 and will receive family-oriented prizes.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond.
