SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii – Military pets can get in on the holiday cheer in the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Mars Petcare holiday pet costume contest.
Dec. 1 through Dec. 31, AAFES shoppers can dress their fur babies up in their festive finest and submit a photo at ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes to win an Exchange gift card. Two grand-prize winners will each receive a $500 Exchange gift card, and eight runners-up will each receive a $250 gift card in the worldwide sweepstakes.
“Four-legged family members can get into the spirit of the season and earn holiday gifts for their humans,” said Schofield Main Exchange Store Manager Nanami Taniguchi. “It’s a fun way for the Exchange to celebrate the holidays and the pets who mean so much to the military community.”
Authorized Exchange shoppers 18 and older may enter. Retirees, honorably discharged Veterans, and Department of Defense and Coast Guard civilians can enter, too. Entries will be judged on originality, creativity and adherence to the contest’s theme.
No purchase is necessary to win. Limit one entry per person. Entries must be sent as a JPG, PNG or PDF and include the pet’s name, the entrant’s legal first and last name, mailing address, email address, phone number and local Exchange location.
In Hawaii, authorized patrons have four Exchanges they can shop at:
- Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe (not an AAFES facility)
- Navy Exchange (not an AAFES facility)
- Schofield Barracks
