Hill residents can show their Natitude by voting for their favorite Washington Nationals-themed pumpkin carving and copying the designs at home.

The “NatsOLantern” jack-o’-lantern contest ends Thursday evening, the team’s website says. Fans selected five top designs created by Nats lovers, including one gourd carved with “Fear the Goggles” and another with an intricate portrait of player Jayson Werth.

The contest winner will receive an autographed Jayson Werth garden gnome.

The pumpkin with Werth’s face was a hit on the Nationals’ Twitter account.

“Holy cow the Jayson Werth looks like a painting!!! That’s talent!!!” user @diamondgirl1967 tweeted.

Unlimited voting will be open until 5 p.m. Thursday and can be done by text message. For more information, see the Nationals’ website.

In addition to hosting the contest, the Nationals created jack-o’-lantern stencils that can be downloaded. The designs include the Nationals W, a W with baseball stitches and the faces of the Teddy and Bill mascots.
