Beverly Dassonville, from Middlebury, is in the running for a $500,000 prize to build a new dog park in the Middlebury area.
From now through Dec. 5, Dassonville is encouraging the local community to visit www.BenefulDreamDogPark.com and cast a vote for her video entry. In addition to the public vote, which represents 30 percent of the total score to select the grand prize winner, the finalists video entries will be judged by the Beneful Dream Team. Their judging will count for 70 percent of the final total score.
The Beneful Dream Team consists of designer and dog lover Nate Berkus, who will help design the $500,000 Dream Dog Park renovation; licensed contractor Jason Cameron, who hosts DIY Network’s “Desperate Landscapes” and “Man Caves,” and manages the renovation; pet expert Arden Moore, who oversees the renovation from the dog’s point of view; and a Beneful brand representative.
