Birdhouse contest sponsored by LC Arts Council

by Maureen Dosier

Lawrence County Arts Council

Attention all woodworking enthusiasts: The Lawrence County Arts Council is sponsoring its first Functional Homemade Birdhouse Contest.

This contest is open to all ages and residents in and out of Lawrence County.

This might be a fun summer project for the entire family to get involved in.

The only two rules are the birdhouse must be functional (holes sized for real birds) and homemade, the rest we leave up to your imagination. It can be a single-family house or multiple dwelling (for Martins) made out of new lumber or old scraps, embellished with architectural features, salvaged items, wood, tin or copper roof, it can look like a house or any shape you want. You can add decorative painting, clay or mosaic accents or leave it plain, it can be post mount, wall mount or hanging, you’re only limited by your own imagination.

There will be prizes and ribbons awarded for the most unique birdhouse and the best built birdhouse categories.

All birdhouse entries must be submitted Saturday, Aug. 2, to the Lawrence County Public Library between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and will be displayed throughout August for the public to enjoy.

Have fun creating and good luck.

The LCAC will have its regular monthly meeting Thursday, July 10, at 4:30 p.m. at the Lawrence County Extension Office.

On the agenda: new projects for summer/fall. The public is encouraged and invited to attend.
