Latest Exchange Contest Goes ‘To the Dogs’

DALLAS – It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Patriot Family “Just Say Treat” contest, a pet picture and 50 words could be worth $500.

From May 4-31, pet owners can submit a photo of their furry friend, along with a 50-word or less description, for a shot at the $500 grand prize.

 “Pets are a huge part of our extended Patriot Family,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Jeffry Helm. “This contest gives animal lovers of all ages the chance to show others, both through photos and words, why their two-,four-, six- or even eight-legged friend are such a special part of their home.”
