Hill Air Force Base– The Army & Air Force Exchange Service isn’t kitten around. Hill shoppers can send their patriotic pet photos in May for a chance to win a share of $3,000 in prizes in the Patriot Pet Photo Contest.

From May 1 through May 31, eligible Exchange shoppers 18 years and older worldwide—including honorably discharged Veterans and Department of Defense and Coast Guard employees and retirees—can participate in the patriotic-themed pet photo contest. Shoppers can visit and submit a photo of their pet adorned in a patriotic costume or posing against a patriotic backdrop for a chance to win. The contest is sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet.

Two grand-prize winners will each receive a $500 Exchange gift card. Eight runners-up will each receive a $250 Exchange gift card.

“For many Soldiers, Airmen and Guardians, pets are a part of the family,” said Hill BX Store Manager Eleanor Veloria. “This contest gives the military community a chance to show off their four-legged friends in a fun and rewarding way.” 

Contest rules can be found at beginning May 1. Winners will be selected on or around June 16.
