Forward Madison giving fans chance to name new flamingo at Henry Vilas Zoo
MADISON, Wis. — The Forward Madison FC soccer team is giving fans the chance to name one of the new flamingos at Henry Vilas Zoo.
According to a news release from Tuesday, the name will be decided through an online contest.
The contest comes after the zoo announced it will be adding five flamingos and a bison this winter. The soccer team’s Twitter page received a number of name suggestions after asking fans in a post.
Those who would like to share their name ideas can submit suggestions to the Forward Madison website. Suggestions will be narrowed down to a final public vote.
The winner will receive a prize, and the actual flamingo will have a pink leg band tied to it with its new name.
It’s official – @HenryVilasZoo is getting flamingos! �
Any ideas on names, Forward fans? https://t.co/gYv50X4p3l
