Bulldog History: The Beautiful Bulldog Contest, a Drake Relays tradition entering its
35th year, was the first of its kind in the nation and continues to be a model
for imitators from several states. The winner, who receives top honors as well
as a crown and cape, appears before his or her royal subjects of
16,000 fans at the Drake Relays to be officially honored as the Drake Relays
2014 List of Awards: The following titles will be awarded to deserving Bulldogs:
Farthest from the Dog House
Rescue Dog Recognition
Porterhouse People's Choice
Most Beautiful Bulldog
In its three
decades of existence, the contest has changed little. Some of the awards have
remained constant like Most Beautiful Bulldog, and Congeniality, while others
have been modified over the years. Another constant has been the winner’s duties,
which ask that the winning Bulldog participate in Drake Relays activities
throughout the week. The past few years have seen so many entries that last
year’s contestants were selected by lottery from a pool of more than 100
Beautiful Bulldog hopefuls.
