DECEMBER 3, 2020 – The howl-idays are the most wonderful time of the year, and Army & Air Force Exchange Service and the J.M. Smucker Co. invite military shoppers to share photos of their pets celebrating the season for a chance to win $3,000 in prizes.
From Dec. 1 through Dec. 31, Exchange shoppers 18 years and older can submit photos of their pets decked out in holiday attire or with Santa Paws—er, Claus—for a chance to win. Two grand-prize winners each will be awarded $500 Exchange gift cards, and eight runners-up will each receive $250 Exchange gift cards in the worldwide contest.
“This contest is an annual favorite with Exchange shoppers,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “Military families can celebrate the season in style and have a chance to win a prize in the process.”
Shoppers, including honorably discharged Veterans, can visit ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes to enter. No purchase is necessary to win. Entries must be sent as a JPG, PNG or PDF and include the pet’s name, the entrant’s legal first and last name, mailing address, email address, phone number and local Exchange location. Limit one entry per person.
Entries will be judged on originality, creativity and adherence to the contest’s theme. Winners will be notified on or around Jan. 31.
