poetry contest for kids

Got a creative kid (of the human variety) or know someone who does? Check out this cool new contest especially for the kiddos! Teachers and parents are invited to enter their 3rd-8th grade kids in the 5th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest!

And why do I think this is so cool? Because your child gets to write a poem about their pet and the joys that come with having a pet in their life! I love sharing opportunities like this one that help kids express their love of pets AND their creativity at the same time!

Six U.S. students (1 per grade level) will each WIN:
  • A $1,000 scholarship for each winning student’s classroom
  • A $250 gift certificate for pet products
  • A “by·line” in a nationally circulated magazine!
Ways to Enter (by January 31, 2013 5pm EST):
    • Enter the poetry contest using this Online EntryForm OR
    • Mail this form with your entry to: Pets Add Life (PAL) 661 Sierra Rose Dr. Reno, NV 89511
    • Teachers: Go HERE for instructions on how to enter your whole classroom

PAL pledge to help homeless pets

In addition to the Poetry Contest, Pets Add Life also has a great Pet Pledge Drive going on right now. Be sure to stop by their Facebook Page and take the pledge to do what you can to help a pet find a forever home. With 3 ways to pledge, it’s a fantastic idea for a New Year’s Resolution!

Make a Special A New Year’s Resolution to Help a Homeless Pet:
  • Pledge to adopt your next pet
  • Pledge to volunteer at a shelter
  • Pledge to share a photo of a homeless pet

Visit PAL’s Pet Pledge on Facebook to make your pet pledge today!

This post is sponsored by the Pets Add Life campaign and the American Pet Products Association. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the benefits and joys of pet ownership.
