"TDS Telecom has sponsored the art competition for the past four years and we are pleased to have their sponsorship once again for 2012," Cheryl Hebenstreit, art competition coordinator said.
TDS is the exclusive sponsor for the Shepherd's Award and this winning artwork will be used to promote the 2012 Hotchkiss Sheep Camp Stock Dog Trials on Mother's Day weekend, May 11, 12 and 13, on posters and t-shirts.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, March 10 at the Artist's Reception at the Hotchkiss/Crawford Historical Society Museum.
