The Coolest Dog on the Front Range Contest is open to anyone in the known universe 21-years-old or older who would like to enter their dog to compete for the coveted title of “The Coolest Dog on the Front Range” for 2020.
Submit a photo of your dog. Provide a few short sentences why your dog is the coolest of the cool. Photos should be digital and high enough resolution to look good on the internet. No photos of people, just your dog. Photos should be in crisp focus.
There is a $10.00 fee to enter your dog, but you automatically receive 10 votes when you submit your pup! If you have multiple dogs, please take separate photos of each and post them separately. The $10.00 posting fee applies to each dog entered.
Dog Owners are encouraged to have their friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers go to the contest website and vote for their dog.
Votes cost $1.00 per vote with no maximum on how many votes a person can buy. For example, you can give 50 votes to your favorite dog by donating $50.00 in a single transaction via the website. You can come back to the site as many times as you want and donate votes as often as you’d like. Dog owners themselves will be able to buy as many votes as they’d like too.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be awarded to the Foothills Kiwanis Club of Boulder Valley. All funds will go directly to our Club’s charitable Foundation, where they will be applied to one of the many club projects (Ex: Alert Service Dogs for Kids, College Scholarships, Girls’ Softball, Stars of Tomorrow Talent Show, Sweet Dream in a Bag for Foster Kids, The Salvation Army Red Kettle, High School Key Clubs, University Circle K Club, Pack Away Hunger Disaster Kits, and other identified local needs).
