Fairy Walk: Official Contest Rules

  1. The contest is for youth ages 10 and under.  Fairy houses must be accomplished with minimal help from adults. (Adults should help with activities such as cutting or hot gluing for safety purposes). The age of the builder(s) will be listed on contest tags.  The Library and 1,000 Islands has the authority to disqualify homes that do not look like they were created by the age of the listed participant.   
  2. Houses must be made from all natural materials.  Please be mindful that the chipmunks like to eat houses made out of food.  Any man-made items should be covered with natural items.
  3. Platforms or man-made support materials should be used for easy delivery and transport, but should be covered to look natural.
  4. Houses should be portable as they will be transported to the boardwalk.  Maximum dimensions should be 16”L X 16”W X 24”H.
  5. Please do not use any items of value in your house as KPL and 1,000 Islands are not responsible for any loss or damage.
  6. The theme of the house may be anything you wish.
  7. Houses must be dropped off at 1,000 Islands between August 13-17 (please see 1,000 Islands Nature Center’s hours for open and close times).  Entries dropped off after August 25 may be displayed, but will not be eligible for any prizes.
