Do you like to dress up your dog in Redbird sweaters? Does your cat love batting around your plush Reggie Redbird toy? We’ve got a contest for you.

We’re looking for the Cutest Redbird Pet. All you have to do is send in (or post) a photo of your dog, cat, parrot, ferret, etc. wearing or playing with some sort of Illinois State gear.

The deadline to send in or post your photos is Sunday, March 1. We’ll post all of the entries on Facebook, and a team of certified Redbird animal lovers will pick three finalists. A grand prize and two runner-up prizes will be awarded.

There are two ways to enter: Fill out the form at or post your photo on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #RedbirdPet.

A few rules:

  • You must be an ISU alum, student, faculty, or staff member to win.
  • One entry per pet.
  • Pet humiliation is acceptable, but nothing cruel please.
