We’ve felt that sharp shift in the weather this week that means only one thing. Fall is here and winter is well on its way! And while you may have already had your fill of pumpkin lattes, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin spice candles this season, there is one tradition still waiting to be checked off the list – pumpkin carving!

Join Tahoe Getaways in supporting our local schools by entering the Third Annual #PumpkinsforEducation Pumpkin Carving Contest. It’s free, easy, and fun.

To enter, simply:

  1. Gather your friends, pick your perfect pumpkin and carve your masterpiece.
  1. Snap a photo of your pumpkin and uploaded it on our Facebook page by October 29th.
  1. Return to vote for your favorite entries, and encourage friends and family to vote for yours.

This year, the prizes are bigger and better than ever. Tahoe Getaways will make a donation of $1000 in cash to the Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation in the name of the winner, and $300 in the name of the runner up. And the two winning carvers will receive a little something to take home as well.

The Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation enhances public education within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. With tireless fundraising efforts, and programs such as Tahoe Truckee Reads, Excellence in Education impacts over 4,000 students in our local community.

Happy Carving!
