Oskaloosa fifth graders put their creativity to work to create decorative pumpkins for the annual Pumpkins, Poems and Photography contest at the school.

Poems were written in the classroom, while the students had the opportunity to decorate their pumpkins or snap photos at home with family.

Pumpkins are judged by school staff using the categories funniest, best use of fall theme and most original.

The top three students in each category got to take home a cash prize raised by the PTO.
