They also may be picked up during the World Penguin Day celebration Sunday or at the zoo’s gift shop through Feb. 1, zoo officials said. 

Entries are due 5 p.m. Feb 1. After that, the penguin keepers will select their top three choices and the public may vote on their favorite. 

The three top name choices will be announced on Feb. 6, on the Zoo’s Facebook page.
