SPCA Kicks Off Annual Calendar Photo Contest At Lycoming Mall


The Daily Item

— WILLIAMSPORT — The Lycoming County SPCA officially launched its 2014 PAWtraits Pet Calendar Contest. Entries for the seventh annual contest are being accepted now. On March 13, the public contest display will be open at the Lycoming Mall. The contest display features photos of locally-owned pets that mall visitors may view and then make monetary contributions to the photo/s they believe should appear in the calendar. The top 12 photos that receive the most monetary votes will then appear in the 2014 calendar printed and distributed by the Lycoming County SPCA in mid-October.

The contest photos will remain on display at the Lycoming Mall until May 13. The final date to contribute monetary votes is May 13 at 2 p.m. and the winners of the contest will be officially announced on June 2 at the SPCA/ClearChannel Communication’s Pet Expo being held at Indian Park of Montoursville.

In addition to the monetary votes being collected at the Lycoming Mall, calendar contest participants can also raise extra votes (donations) on their own. Sponsors may also view the contest entries and place their monetary votes on the SPCA website at www.lycomingspca.org or on the SPCA’s Facebook Page. The deadline for submitting donations is May 13 by 2 p.m. at the Lycoming County SPCA to be counted as votes.

Entry forms are available at the SPCA located at 2805 Reach Road and at the Lycoming Mall Contest Display. You can also obtain the official rules, entry forms and other information on the contest at www.lycomingspca.org or on the Lycoming County SPCA Facebook Page. Entries will be accepted through May 13.

The calendars will be printed and offered for sale to the public starting in mid-October. Please note that the SPCA is also soliciting advertising for the calendar from businesses and individuals.
