LOGAN– Calling all dog lovers.
Local resident Kellie Hiskey and her four-legged best buddy Koda need your votes. Kellie is one of twelve finalists in the 2012 Beneful® Dream Dog Park Contest that invited dog owners across the country to answer the question: If you had $500,000 to create a Dream Dog Park where you and your best buddy can play together, what would you do?
One lucky Grand Prize Winner will win $10,000 cash and a one- year supply of Beneful brand dog food. In addition, the winner’s dream ideas will help serve as inspiration for a $500,000 makeover of a dog park in their area.
Hundreds of dog owners entered the third annual contest, and Kellie and her dog Koda are now inviting their local community to help them win by visiting <a href=”http://www.benefuldreamdogpark.com”>BenefulDreamDogPark.com</a> and casting a vote for their entry.
From now through November 7, the twelve finalist entries will be posted on the contest website for consumer viewing and voting. In addition to the public vote, which represents 20 percent of the total score to select the Grand Prize Winner, the finalists will be judged by the <a href=”http://www.beneful.com/Dream-Dog-Park/Judges/”>Beneful Dream Team</a>.
The team includes: Eric Stonestreet, dog lover and Emmy Award-winning actor on the hit TV show Modern Family; Jason Cameron, licensed contractor and host of DIY’s “Desperate Landscapes,” who manages the renovation; and pet expert Arden Moore, who oversees the renovation from the dog’s point of view. Their judging will count for the 80 percent of the total final score to select the winner.
After being named a finalist and advancing to Round Two in the contest, Kellie was asked to create, narrate and submit a video up to two minutes in length showing her daily adventure together with Koda at the dog park and how they would make it even better if given the opportunity to inspire a dream dog park. Some of Kellie’s ideas included tributes to history’s most inspirational canines, agility equipment and jogging trail.
In addition to receiving $10,000 cash and a one-year supply of Beneful brand dog food, her ideas help serve as inspiration for a $500,000 makeover of a dog park in her area. All runners up will receive a one-year supply of Beneful brand dog food. The Grand Prize Winner will be announced in November 2012, and the third Beneful Dream Dog Park will be unveiled in early summer 2013.
