BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There are one thousand ways to enjoy a hot dog. The Buffalo Bisons are giving you the chance to share your favorite one with thousands of Western New Yorkers.

The team has launched what it's calling the " Top Your Dog " contest. It will run in two phases.

Phase 1 (July 9 - July 30): you submit your hot dog with its own name, choosing up to four toppings and including any special instructions
Phase 2 (August 5 - August 16): the submissions, now whittled down to a top 10 by hot dog experts at Sahlen's and at the ballpark, are voted on by the fans

Here's what will happen if you're the winner:

  • the Bisons will serve your hot dog at Sahlen Field on Monday, August 26
  • you'll throw out the first pitch at the game
  • you'll get 20 tickets to the game
  • you'll get 40 vouchers for hot dogs, so your friends can check out your dog
  • you'll get free Sahlen's hot dogs for one year and a Sahlen's prize pack
