Weis kicks off second Penn State Pet-of-the-Game Facebook contest

SUNBURY, Pa. — After a popular Facebook contest made Brandi, a 7-year-old German shepherd mix, Weis Markets’ Pet of the Game at a Penn State football game in 2010, the company’s second annual Pet of the Game Facebook Contest returns to Weis Markets’ official Facebook fan page, the grocer announced Thursday.

Beginning Sept. 2, there will be a weekly Pet of the Game Winner who will receive a $50 Weis gift card and an entry in the Grand Prize Contest for eight tickets to the Penn State-Nebraska game at Beaver Stadium on Nov. 12, VIP tailgating passes and a $250 Weis Markets gift card.

To enter, fans must like the official Weis Markets Facebook page and enter a photo of their favorite pet in Penn State gear or colors. Each entrant will receive a coupon for a free bag of Weis-brand Paws dog or cat treats.

The 2010 contest included 136 competitors, including dogs, cats, horses, gerbils and a rabbit.
