If "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" a tiny town in South Carolina should be very pleased with Elkton right now.
The county seat has taken a contest idea from South Carolina and adopted it for their very own.
For the first time ever, there will be scarecrows on Elkton's Main Street. "The idea was originally brought to us from (a staffer at) McCool Insurance. Another town did that and we needed someone to push it forward here," said Jessica Price from Elkton's Chamber/Alliance, the organization hosting Scarecrows on Main.
