HANNIBAL | Hannibal's annual pet show sponsored by the F&M Bank and Trust Co. was conducted online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This resulted in a big increase of entries, according to contest chairperson Jaclyn Givan, assistant controller at the bank.
The pet show had more than 160 entries posted online, Givan said, giving the judges challenges in selecting the winners. “It was a tough decision, for sure,” she said on Thursday, July 2, when the winners were announced.
“Not all entries included their kids’ names and ages, so all I have is who submitted them and the pet’s name for some,” she said.
“We do have the People’s Choice award still going on,” she said on Thursday. “They can go to our Facebook page to see all entries and vote for their favorite.”
