2012 Dog Jog Update
And The Winner Is…
A big congratulation to Kaylee Rogers for creating the winning design for the 2012 Dog Jog Logo! Kaylee is a fourth-grader at Barranca Elementary School and says she entered the contest because she likes to draw and thinks it would be fun to enter. She attends Barranca Elementary School and likes art, music and baton twirling.
Kaylee poses with her dog, Penny, who was adopted by her family from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter just over a year ago. Penny was the inspiration for her artwork.
The competition was steep this year with the most entries we have seen in years, so we also send out a big THANK YOU to all those who put their best artistic talents forward in hopes of landing a spot in Dog Jog history. 2nd Place – Michaelle Sutton, 3rd Place – Kristen Pimentel, 4th Place – Frances Laurent and Makenna Ellsworth, Honorable mentions also given to Elia Vasquez, Amaya Coblentz, Dara Armstrong, and Rachel Frankle.
