BRIDGEWATER — The Bridgewater Police Foundation is launching a new contest that encourages people to create the most creative face mask.
Contest participants must make a homemade mask and send a picture wearing the mask to the Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run Facebook page, @BridgewaterPolice5K, to be entered into the contest.
Anyone is welcome to participate and you do not have to be a Bridgewater resident. Entries will be accepted through Monday, May 4. The winners will be selected and announced later that week.
The top three winners deemed by the Bridgewater Police Foundation to have the most creative masks will receive free entry to the Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run race and a $50 gift card.
Those who submit a photo for the contest agree that the photo can be publicized on social media and used for Bridgewater Police 5K promotional purposes.
“We hope this contest can be a fun project that helps occupy everyone staying at home and spreads some positivity throughout the community and on social media, while also resulting in a mask that helps keep you safe,” Chief Delmonte said.
