EASTON, Pa. -

The National Canal Museum has a new mascot--and it needs a name.

A contest is underway through August 12 and the winner gets prizes!

You can either submit your entries online or at the National Canal Museum and the Locktender's Table in Hugh Moore Park, at 2750 Hugh Moore Park Road in Easton.

Each person can submit up to two names and entries are due by 5 p.m. August 12.

Three finalists will be selected, from which a grand winner will be selected. The winners will be selected by a panel of Heritage Corridor experts.

The winner will be announced on Sunday, August 18, 2013 Kids Day at the National Canal Museum.

The finalists will have their picture taken with the new mascot.

The winner receives a 100-year-old blue print or $75 Museum gift card and six Museum and Canal Boat passes.

Runner ups receive four Museum and Canal Boat passes.

Hugh Moore Historical Park and Museum is a Smithsonian-affiliated organization in the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
