Coastal Carolina Riverwatch is calling for folks to show off their pumpkin-carving skills for the “Carve for Clean Water” virtual contest.

Artists can send photos through the website of their creations for the organization’s pumpkin-carving contest. There is a $5 donation per entry or $3 per entry for members. 100% of the entry donation goes to protect clean water.

Submissions will be accepted until Oct. 31. Winners will be announced Nov. 2.

There will be eco-friendly prizes awarded for first, second and third place. Contactless prize pickup will be at the Morehead City office.

Clean water lovers ages 12 and under are invited to participate in the no-carve contest. Participants can draw, paint, glue and embellish decoupage, the possibilities are endless, organizers said. No-carve entries will be judged separately for eco-friendly prizes.

Coastal Carolina Riverwatch is home to both Crystal Coast Waterkeeper and White Oak New-Riverkeeper Alliance programs. The group serves a total of 320 miles of rivers and streams, 140,104 acres of estuaries and 129 miles of coastline.
