AHS NEW COLORING BOOK COVER:
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE

IN ADVANCE OF a very busy national election season, the Associated Humane Societies is asking its supporters to vote for something fun.
AHS needs help in selecting a cover for its upcoming fundraiser coloring book, “Our Animal Friends.” So, it is holding an internet election of its own. The six candidates all have a similar platform – love of animals – but it’s up to the voters to decide which of the entries will grace the cover.
Last fall AHS invited everyone with an artistic flair to submit entries for the coloring book cover. The winner of the contest will win $500 and have their work grace the cover of the 128-page coloring book. Choosing the winner, however, turned out to be a daunting task.
“We were overwhelmed with so many beautiful entries, all truly depicting what Popcorn Park Zoo and Associated Humane Societies is all about – protecting and helping all animals, said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park. “We narrowed the entries down to six, but when it came down to selecting the one winner, we thought it best to leave it to those who will enjoy the coloring book – our friends and supporters.”
All six entries are posted on the Associated Humane Societies website at www.ahscares.org. Voters can simply click here for the coloring book cover contest page and vote for their favorite entry. Voting deadline is March 15.
The book, planned for publication later this year, includes art work designed over the years by many AHS supporters, along with photos of many of the animals who make their homes at Popcorn Park Zoo. The book will be sold as a fundraiser for AHS.
