Can you think of something to call this penguin (aside from dorky)?

Know a kid age twelve and under in need of some holiday cash? Then encourage him or her to come up with a name for this penguin, the mascot of the 35th annual Parade of Lights, scheduled for December 4 and 5. The winner will receive, among other things, a $1,000 contribution to a college savings account and a $500 American Furniture Warehouse gift card -- because what youngster wouldn't love a new ottoman for Christmas?

Entries have to be in by November 20; get the rest of the details below. And remember: The name "Dinger" has already been taken.

Contest to Name the Penguin Mascot

As part of the festivities surrounding the 35th anniversary of the Parade, American Furniture Warehouse is launching the "Name the Parade of Lights Penguin Contest" where children 12 years of age and younger can suggest names for the event's popular penguin mascot. The winner of the contest will receive courtesy of American Furniture Warehouse:

• $1,000 contribution to a college savings account • Special seating for 8 in the Parade Grandstand section • $500 American Furniture Warehouse Gift Card • A stuffed American Furniture Warehouse Tiger

All entries must be received by November 20th, and can be submitted in-store at any of American Furniture Warehouse's 12 locations, or online at www.DenverParadeofLights.com or at www.AFWonline.com.
