Name-the-chick Contest – it’s on!!!

It is time to commence the “name-the-chick” contest.  Once again, we look forward to a spirited contest with numerous imaginative entries.  Previous winning names can be viewed here.  Rules and important information are as follows:

  • There is one male Peregrine Falcon chick.
  • The period to submit names is 29 May June to 10:00 a.m. CDT 11 June.
  • From all the entries, finalists will be selected and the public will be allowed to vote on their favorite.  Voting will end 19 June and the winner(s) will be announced on 22 June.
  • Be sure to provide a valid email address (we need to be able to contact you if your entry is selected as a finalist)
  • The winner(s) will receive a modest prize package.

Now that you know all of that, it is time to submit your winning entry.

The submission portion of the “name-the-chick” contest has closed.
