The Humane Education Network’s 20th annual "A Voice for Animals" high school essay contest runs February 1 through March 31. The contest gives students the opportunity to express concerns about animal welfare and present solutions.
Co-sponsored in part by the Animal Welfare Institute and the Palo Alto Humane Society, prizes totaling $6,500 will be awarded for essays that best promote the humane treatment of animals. Students should examine the mistreatment of one animal species or one cause of animal suffering, in addition to suggesting a course of action for the problem(s).
The contest is open to all eligible high school and home-schooled students, regardless of country of residence. For complete details, rules and regulations, visit www.hennet.org or call (650) 851-8140.
