NEW Top Dog 2021
Northeast Wisconsin’s Top Dog Contest
Is your dog the cuddliest, cutest, and all-around coolest dog in Northeast Wisconsin? We think so, and we know you do too! Now’s your chance to prove it! Welcome to the Northeast Wisconsin (NEW) Top Dog fundraiser. This is your opportunity to help us raise funds for two amazing local organizations — the Oshkosh Mid-Morning Kiwanis Club and the Oshkosh Area Humane Society — while showing the world just how cool your dog is! Together, anything is paw-sible. Let’s get started.
It’s Easy To Participate!
Ready to see if your dog has what it takes to be crowned NEW Top Dog 2021?
Donate $10 to enter, upload a photo of your dog, and write a short description of why they are the coolest! You can enter the contest from September 1, 2020 - October 17, 2020, but remember, the sooner you enter, the longer you have to collect votes!
Voting opens September 12 and closes at 8 p.m. on October 17. Get the voting started by generating convincing friends, family, and neighbors to open their wallets! Votes cost just $1, and they can vote as often and as many times as they'd like!
It’s really that easy!
Win Great Prizes!
While the real prize is bragging rights and recognition from the community that your pooch is the coolest, there are all sorts of other cool prizes you could win!
The top vote-getter will receive a prize package valued at over $1,000+. Oh, did we mention the owners of the NEW TOP DOG 2021 get to work with Fifth Ward Brewing and Bare Bones Brewing to produce a special beer in honor of their winning dog? How cool is that?! The beer (which will be produced in 2021) will be named for the winning dog and feature the dog on the can. The top ten finalist dogs will be pictured on the back of the can too.
Be sure to check out the full list of prizes to see what you could win!
Your Participation Helps Area Dogs & Children
Ok, folks, as if you needed another reason to get involved, let’s talk about the biggest reason for participating in the NEW TOP DOG 2021 contest — our charities! As noted, we're raising money to help children and animals in our community through the Oshkosh Mid-Morning Kiwanis Club
and the Oshkosh Area Humane Society
— two local organizations we’re pretty paw-ssionate about.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted monetary support and their overall operations for both these organizations. They need our support now more than ever to continue doing great work in our community. While this is a tough time for all of us, let’s dig deep, raise some money, and have some fun in the process.
You can learn more about these charities and our awesome sponsors here.
