The dog days of summer are officially here, and with football season right around the corner, it's time for Smokey to take a vacation.
All you need to do is print and cut out the Smokey photo (laminating or printing it on cardstock/cardboard helps Smokey last longer), and take photographs of Smokey this summer wherever you and your family go.
Whether you're hiking in the Smokies, flying to Hawaii, whitewater rafting, going to the zoo, golfing, or simply having a family barbecue, bring Smokey around and take some photos.
Individuals can email their "Summer of Smokey" photographs to UTathletics@utk.edu. All photos will be uploaded to the Tennessee Athletics Facebook page.
The top-5 photographs will be selected by the UT Athletics Staff and our facebook followers will be able to vote for their favorite picture. The photo with the most "likes" will win 2 tickets to the Football home opener vs. Montana on Sept. 3.
All photos must be submitted by Friday, August 26th. Fans also have the chance to earn two tickets to a men's basketball game vs. Connecticut and two season tickets to Tennessee women's basketball for the 2011-12 season.
