It's a perfect "10" this year! Here's how YOU can score!

All Oklahoma students, including those related to Zoo and OZS employees, are welcome to participate in the 10th annual Dr Pepper Vending Machine Art Contest for a chance to win Visa® gift cards courtesy of First Security Bank, art supplies from Porch School & Art Supply and have their design displayed on a Dr Pepper machine at the Zoo. This year not only marks the 10th anniversary of this contest but also the 110th birthday for the Zoo!

Students can join in the celebration and illustrate what they love about the Zoo, creating inspiring designs based upon the contest’s theme, “Celebrate all things zoo—animals, nature and conservation!” Let the Zoo’s commitment to conservation inspire you. The Zoo is dedicated to the preservation of the world’s natural resources through global conservation projects, education, awareness and research. Through its conservation efforts, the Zoo supports animals such as Asian and African elephants, rhinoceros, Sumatran tigers and orangutans, Western lowland gorillas, lesser prairie chickens and sea turtles, and their natural habitats. So let the Zoo's commitment to conservation inspire you!

And that's not all!! New this year -- teachers of participating students will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $50 gift cards from Porch School & Art Supply.

Entries must be postmarked by March 31, 2014 and submitted on an official entry form. You may drop off completed entries in the Zoo's Guest Relations office. The winning designs will be unveiled at the Zoo on Sunday, April 27, during the Zoo‛s Party for the Planet celebration.
