Organizers would like the Texarkana park to be called the Kylee Sullivan Dog Park in honor of the 7-year old who died in the Albert Pike flood in June 2010.
Kylee was an avid animal lover who was always made donations to the shelter.   
The contest winner will be announced on July 31st.
Should Texarkana win, they will build the dog park inside Spring Lake Park.
