RCMP love to receive drawings and paintings! If submitting by mail, children are invited to get creative with their entries.
Winning names will be chosen by the PDSTC staff. A draw will determine the winning entry in the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name.
Although there can be only 13 winners, names not selected for the contest will be considered for other puppies born during the year.
