It’s the RCMP ‘Name the Puppies’ Contest!

A contest for kids across the country! The RCMP needs help to name puppies that will become Canada’s future RCMP police dogs. There are 13 German shepherd puppies that will be born at the training Centre in Alberta this year, and kids are encouraged to be original and imaginative in finding names that will serve these puppies well in their careers with Canada’s national police force.

There is some criteria:

*Names must begin with the letter “P”
*Names must have no more than 9 letters
*Names must be 1 or 2 syllables

Contestants must live in Canada
Contestants must be 4 to 14 years old
Only 1 entry per child will be eligible
Entries must be received by March 18, 2021
All contest entries must be submitted online
Contest winners and the winning names will be announced on April 28, 2021 on the RCMP website and social media.

The 13 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice, and an RCMP water bottle. Although there can be only 13 winners, names not selected for the contest will be considered for other puppies born during the year.

And good luck! Wouldn’t it be neat if a name from NS, or even better, the Annapolis Valley was chosen! 🙂
