pet poetry contest: calling all creative kids!
As a longtime friend of PAL, Pets Add Life, I’m happy to share news about a cool opportunity for our students, teachers, and parents.
Now through January 31, 2014, Pets Add Life invites students in grades 3 – 8 to enter the 6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest and write a poem about their pets. So fun.
All entrants have a chance at winning a $250 gift card and a byline in a national publication or online outlet. But there’s more.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- Pet Poetry Contest–Calling All Creative Kids: Pets Add Life is a nonprofit campaign established by the American Pet Products Association.
And I love that PAL does this every year to not only get kids writing (yay!) but to celebrate our furry, feathery, scaly, fuzzy friends.
Love pets? Your creative student could win $250 plus $1,000 for their classroom!
That’s right. Each winning student’s classroom will receive $1,000 to spend on pet-related education!
Teachers are encouraged to submit students’ poems in one entry on behalf of their classrooms. For more information or to submit poems, visit www.PetsAddLife.org.
You can enter the contest here: PAL Pet Poetry Contest.
Thinking about entering? We are too! Please stay in touch and let us know if your kiddo–or student–is a winner!
fyi: This is a sponsored post; I was asked to share information about this contest by my friends at PAL, and I gladly obliged knowing it’s a serious win-win!
