The city asked for name nominations through its Facebook account, and then invited its Facebook followers to vote for their favorite. Scoop was selected from more than 130 choices. The winning name was suggested by three people: Sharon Pidcock Winfrey, Jennifer Niland Wright and Cathy Clayton.

“Thank you to everyone who offered a name for the mascot. We had many creative options,” said Denise Bevan, coordinator of the Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup. “Now, join Scoop to help clean and protect our community's treasured waterways and trails!”
