Compassion for animals forms at a young age, so let’s get the conversation started early.
Encourage a young person that you know to enter the Be Kind to Animals, Poster and Writing Contest. Geared for 1st thru 8th graders, this contest has something for everyone. Students may choose to create a poster or an essay, which illustrates their compassion for animals. Prompts for age-appropriate themes are provided. Students must adhere to the theme that best fits their age level.
The top 5 submissions will be displayed in the lobby of Placer SPCA’s Roseville Companion Animal Care Center for 1 month after the deadline. Visitors to Placer SPCA will be encouraged to vote for their favorite entry. At the end of the month, the student with the most votes will win a Placer SPCA T-shirt and grab bag, and the chance to have their artwork featured on Placer SPCA marketing materials.
The deadline for submitting your project is March 14, 2014, but don’t waste valuable time; the first 10 entries will win a Placer SPCA water bottle!
If you know a young person who LOVES animals, tell them about the Be Kind to Animals, Poster and Writing Contest! If you would like to learn more about this or any of Placer SPCA’s Humane Education Programs, please visit www.placerspca.org/education.
Teaching our youth about the humane treatment of animals is the mission of Placer SPCA’s Humane Education Department. Through contests like the above mentioned, scout programs, school presentations, and summer kid’s camps we can educate children about basic animal safety and care, and what it means to be responsible and compassionate towards all animals.
