All businesses. organizations, and individuals in Athens-Limestone County are invited to participate in KALB’s 2nd Annual QUACKY DUCK DECORATING CONTEST to support KALB.

There is no up front costs to adopt a duck to decorate.

Guidelines for Participation

  • KALB will supply a wooden duck to any business, organization, or individual in Limestone County wishing to participate once a registration form is received.  See links to printable and online registration forms below.
  • We encourage participants to incorporate the theme “Athens Bicentennial:  200 Years of Duck Tales” in their creation; however, this will not be a firm requirement.  We do require that all decorations be tasteful.
  • Ducks may be painted and/or embellished in any way, as long as the duck footprint is no larger than 18″x18″.
  • Although not a requirement, participants are encouraged to attach items of value to their ducks to increase interest in the purchase of raffle tickets to win ducks.
  • Ducks should be completed no later than Monday, October 15, 2018 and should be displayed in a business or other public location where raffle tickets can be sold.  Ducks may be displayed prior to that date.  KALB will provide raffle tickets, instructions and publicity for the ducks.  If you do not have a location to display your duck, it can be displayed at the KALB office.
  • Ducks can be brought to the KALB office (or collected by KALB) on Monday, November 12th to prepare for display during the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Open House where additional raffle tickets will be sold.
  • The winner of “Most Wanted – People’s Choice” ribbon will be awarded to the duck raising the most money in ticket sales.  Judges will be selected to choose the winner of “Best Decorated Duck – Judges’ Choice”.  Winners will be announced following the Christmas Open House.
