Friend of the Festival


The 2021 Friends of the Festival are

the Principals and Teachers in Sycamore


This year’s Friend(s) of the Festival are the many Principals and Teachers of kindergarten through fifth grade from: the Sycamore School District; St. Mary’s School, Sycamore; and Aurora Christian Cornerstone Campus. In the spring of each year the Pumpkin Festival Committee holds the Theme contest asking the children in those grades to suggest a theme for the upcoming year. The principals and teachers in Sycamore use this contest to encourage their students to get creative, as well as to improve their writing skills as they submit theme suggestions. From the long list of theme suggestions the committee goes to work voting the winner and two honorable mentions. The theme contest has been a part of the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival since 1976.

The Committee would like to also recognize the teachers and principals for their assistance in navigating the unknown situation of the 2019-2020 school year.

The Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Committee would like to thank and celebrate the hard work, and dedication our educators put into supporting our children while they participate in the Theme Contest.
