Best pet of SPU’s incoming 2020 class

Pets are our furry companions who hold special places in our hearts — it's hard to leave home without them! On July 6, we launched the #bestpet theme for our annual #spubound photo contest for Seattle Pacific's 2020 incoming class.

Incoming students showed us their #bestpet photos on social media, and we narrowed it down to the top six.

You voted to choose the best photo, and you chose Kiersten's "You Make Me Smile" photo as the winner! She has won $50 to donate to an animal nonprofit organization. Congratulations!

All students who have submitted photos will be entered into the raffle to win a $150 Amazon gift card at the end of the contest. Every photo submission per theme will count as a raffle entry.

Voting closed on Friday, July 17 at 11:59 p.m.
