Put your vegetable carving skills to the test at the pumpkin design contest from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Ferguson Plaza for an evening of pumpkins and prizes.
Prizes are to be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Judges will rank pumpkins on the basis of "creativity and originality of design, craftsmanship, precision, and level of difficulty," said Department of University Program's Bonikka Ashley.
"Entries will be voted on by members of the UA community," Ashley said. "We will be offering gift cards to Cobb Theatres for contest winners."
Participants are required to be a student at The University of Alabama and are to register online at upua.tix.com. Registration is free.
