“Annually the Clark County Auditor’s Office, along with the Clark County Humane Society, proudly supports Dog Tag Registration education through its “Top Dog” contest,” said Auditor John S. Federer. This year’s contest was conducted from October 27 through November 21, 2011 for all 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Clark County students. The contest was an art project to tell a story about the dog owner and his/her pet. “We received 125 entries, and the judging was extremely difficult due to the quality of the students’ projects,” Federer said.
The following are this year’s winners:
1st Place Winner is Gabrielle Limes and her dog, Luther. Gabrielle is a 4th grade student at Northwestern Elementary. Gabrielle will receive the “#1” heart-shaped 2012 Clark County dog tag, along with prizes for her dog.
2nd Place Winner is a 5th grade student at Snowhill School, Olivia Jenkins and her dog Gracie. Olivia will receive the “#2” heart-shaped 2012 Clark County dog tag.
3rd Place Winner is Emma Ervin and her dog Bandit. Emma, a 3rd grade student at Rolling Hills Elementary, will receive the “#3” heart-shaped 2012 Clark County tag.
“I want to thank all of the students, family members and teachers who participated in the contest,” Federer said. “Remember, in order to save time and money, go to the Auditor’s website at http://clarkcounty.dogtaglicense.com/ to order your 2012 dog tags on line.”
