The Tulsa Zoo was selected as one of 50 zoos to compete in the America's ‘Favorite Zoo’ contest.

Microsoft sponsors the contest, so zoo staff put together a video and built a 3-foot penguin statue replica of Bill Gates.

The statue will accompany the video to Microsoft Studios in Washington DC. Arrow Trucking is donating the truck and driver to deliver Penguin Bill to its final destination.

The winning zoo receives $25,000 as well as the title of America's ‘Favorite Zoo.’
