Do you want to design, build, and burn the next effigy for Lakes of Fire?
Please e-mail effigy ideas and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org before Feb 28th!!!
We score on 17 categories, in no particular order:
1. Wow factor: What will you be incorporating in your design to give it that "wow" factor?
2. Interaction: What interactive aspects are part of your plan that will engage participants with the effigy?
3. Relates to Theme/Region: How well does your concept relate to the theme "Superstition" and/or the Great Lakes region?
4. Clear concept: Explain your concept for your effigy project. Please be clear and explain why you feel this is the right effigy project for this year. Do you have blue prints and drawings already?
5. In budget: The current budget from Lakes of Fire is $2,500. Please present a budget with your anticipated expenses. Remember to consider lumber, hardware, lights, decorations, and transportation in your budget planning.
6. Clear Build Plan: How are you going to construct your project? Do you plan to have pre-build days lined up before the event?
7. Effigy Crew: What is your plan for building your crew team? Do you have a build crew already? How will you incorporate other interested volunteers into your plans?
8. Place to build: Do you have a location to work on construction of the effigy before you arrive at Lakes of Fire?
9. Tools/equipment needed: Do you have the tools and equipment needed to actualize your goal?
10. Possible Completion: Please provide a timeline for how you plan to get the effigy built. What will be done before you arrive onsite at Lakes of Fire? What work will have to be completed onsite to finish the project for the event?
11. Safety plan: While everyone is responsible for their own actions, we take civic responsibility seriously. As the effigy designer, what is your safety plan for the structure? Are people going to be able to climb on it? What additions to the effigy will be put in place to ensure safety for participants? Think about the over all safety and tell us your thoughts.
12. Burn Plan: How are you going to light it? What is it made out of? How do you think it is going to burn? What are you going to do to control the burn if needed?
13. LNT: What is your Leave no Trace plan? How do you plan to recruit volunteers to assist you in removing old nails hardware?
14. Prior projects: Are there any prior projects you have completed or assisted with to help us judge your work and commitment?
15. Leadership capabilities: Are there things we should know about you to assist us in determining if your leadership capabilities are sufficient to complete your idea?
16. Incorporate flame effect: How will you incorporate the flame effect that LOF currently owns into your design? How well will it go with the idea?
17. How well will it burn: Based on your construction plan and experience with other effigies, how well do we think it is going to burn?
The more detailed you can give us the better, plans, build outlines, build dates, the better. If you don't know everything don't stress it, as the purpose of the Effigy Council is to not only choose the next effigy but assist the lead and builders in doing so.
The Effigy budget in the past has been about $2,500.00 to include materials and transportation. Due to space constraints the size of the effigy must be less then 4,500 lbs of wood and have a foot print of 20 feet by 30 feet and 25 feet in height or less. In accordance the the wishes of the local fire marshal please construct the effigy of clean wood with minimal plywood.
The winner gets to be the Effigy Lead and Member of the Effigy Council to help choose and mentor the next effigy for the following year.
If you have any questions please let us know. email@example.com
The deadline Feb 28th as we will shortly decide what the next effigy is and who is going to lead the build shortly afterwards.
