(the kid in the pic looks JUST like my kid at that age. Too cute!)
Kindness Pays With the Be Kind to Animals™ Kid Contest
Contest Opens Today!
Once again, it pays to be a kind kid. During American Humane’s 95th annual celebration of Be Kind to Animals Week®, May 3-9, 2009, we will recognize young humanitarians whose work exemplifies humane principles and extraordinary compassion for animals. Grand prize winners will receive $1,000 and runners up will receive $500!
We are looking for kids between the ages of 6 and 17 whose love for and dedication to animals deserves national recognition. Past winners have included dedicated animal shelter volunteers, young entrepreneurs who help animals with their proceeds, and kids who educate others about respect for animals. If this sounds like a kid you know, please nominate him or her by April 15. Visit www.americanhumane.org/bkaw for more information.
