See Our Photo Contest 2009 Winners!
Wow! What an overwhelming response to our photo contest — thank you to the loyal Zooniversity clients who sent in 66 entries to this year’s photo competition. We received so many varying images — some funny, some sweet, some down-right embarrassing (for our presenter anyway). “Drum roll, please…” Here are this year’s winners!
Sheryl Teague, Flower Mound, sent in this great photo of her son John’s birthday party. Sheryl captured the moment when Miss Allison was asking the birthday boy and his guests to open their mouths as “wide as a python.” The Teague family has met many of Zooniversity’s animal ambassadors — we’ve done shows at five of their parties so far! It’s always a joy to watch our birthday kids grow bigger every year. The Teagues opted to receive a free Kids’ Party Pets show for their prize — so we’ll be seeing John and his buddies at his next party this October!
Janet Pilkington sent in this image of her daughter, Brittany, at the Kids’ Party Pets program she shared with her twin brother, Alex, at the Willow Bend Academy in Lewisville. Brittany had her hand’s full with Ellie, our red-tailed boa. She and her brother both got to be the show’s assistant zookeepers — and she is having fun showing her guests her new reptile friend! The Pilkingtons will receive a choice of a $50 American Express gift card or a $50 donation to the charity of their choice.
An after-school site coordinator at the Wedgewood 6th Grade School in Fort Worth, captured this image of two of her students meeting an African Giant Black Millipede at one of two Stage Stars programs we did for them this year. They had to be brave in front of an auditorium full of their friends! Their after-school program will receive a $50 discount on their next Zooniversity show.
