Contest winner Neal Glazier of Schoch Tile and Carpet in Cincinnati, and his dog, Reese.

Invista is awarding $1,000 each to nine retail sales associates (RSAs) in North America who participated in its aligned retailer Stainmaster PetProtect photo contest. 

“We thought the contest would be a fun way to recognize RSAs for their support of Stainmaster PetProtect carpet,” said Melissa Minihan, vice president of marketing for Stainmaster carpet. “Every day, RSAs are educating consumers about the unique benefits Stainmaster PetProtect carpet offers when it comes to solving pet issues in the home. We’re pleased with the product’s success in the marketplace and appreciate RSAs for sharing our story with their customers.”

To enter the contest, RSAs had to strike a pose with their pet wearing a Stainmaster PetProtect carpet pet tag and upload the photo to a special website. Judges awarded winners based on creativity and how the RSAs featured their pet in the photo.

Neal Glazier, Schoch Tile and Carpet, Cincinnati
