Celebrate National Hot Dog Month With Your Favorite Hot Dog Stories

From the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council

As an iconic American food that we enjoy throughout our lives, hot dogs inspire us with happy memories and moments from life that we treasure. For July’s National Hot Dog Month, we asked some hot dog icons to share their unique hot dog stories with us and explain what makes hot dogs so special to them.

Send us a link to a short (less than 2 minutes) video explaining why you love hot dogs and what makes them special to you to contest@hot-dog.org by July 14 for a chance to win some great prizes.
