BRIDGEWATER — The Bridgewater Police Foundation and the Bridgewater Police 5K are pleased to announce the top three winners of the most creative face mask contest.
Patrice Johnson was named the first place winner of the contest for her mask which featured a smiling face. In second place was Lainie Mondeau with a Boston Bruins-themed mask, and in third place was Tommy Morin from Laughter & Hope Ministry for his mask design.
The contest, held through Monday, May 4, encouraged anyone to submit a photo wearing their most creative face mask. Those who submitted a face mask for consideration to the Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run Facebook page were entered into the contest. Each submission was judged on the creativity of the mask.
Johnson, Mondeau and Morin will each receive free entry to the Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run race and a $50 gift card as a prize for their winning submissions.
Several other mask submissions can be viewed here, in the comment section of the original contest post.

“We enjoyed seeing the face masks of those who participated in the contest,” said Bridgewater Police Foundation board member Rebekah Caylor. “It was a nice distraction for us and those who participated during these unprecedented times. We would like to thank everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing the three winners at the Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run race in September.”
The Bridgewater Police 5K & 1M Kids Fun Run race is currently scheduled to be held on Saturday, Sept. 26. Proceeds from this year’s run will support Project PACK.
