Pumpkin Carving Competition

and Member Fundraising

Show your LEEF spirit this fall!

Get creative and help us raise $2000

Apple cider and pumpkin spice, oh my! Show your fall spirit by carving or decorating a pumpkin for our first ever pumpkin competition. The theme is "Environmental Education." Members and non-members are invited to participate for a chance to win a FREE T-SHIRT donated by our wonderful board members.

Last year we hired our first Executive Director. Terran is still part time, but we need to raise enough money to bring her on full-time. Having a full-time Executive Director has been a LEEF goal for years and it would be a game changer for growing our association. If we raised $10 for every member, we would have $2000 toward our goal. We are asking all members to either find a $10 sponsor (or many sponsors!) for their pumpkin or donate $10 themselves. https://www.leef-florida.org/Donate Post your pumpkins online and let your family and friends know how much environmental education means to you.


1. Pumpkins should be carved or decorated in the spirit of the theme: Environmental Education.

2. Pumpkins must be carved or decorated by YOU.

3. Only one entry per person. You can apply as a team, but you only win one shirt.

4. Contest is open to members and nonmembers! All ages welcome, but shirts come in adult sizes.

5. Contestants will need to email a picture (small-medium JPEG files) of their pumpkin to LEEF’s Executive Director Terran McGinnis ( director@leef-florida.org ) by midnight on Oct. 31st.

7. The pictures will then be posted on LEEF’s Facebook page for voting. https://www.facebook.com/LEEF.Florida

8. By emailing your entry you are consenting to LEEF posting that photo on their social media. If you also choose to post on your own social media page, use hashtag #LEEF
