AWI, together with the Humane Education Network, is pleased to announce the 2018 A Voice for Animals Contest. Students age 14–18 are invited to submit essays, photos, or videos that address issues affecting animals around the globe.
Each year we are heartened by the many contest entries we receive that tackle tough problems such as animal cruelty, climate change, and the protection of species threatened with extinction. The entrants’ creative solutions and active involvement in efforts to improve the lives of animals reinforce our position that compassion and empathy for other living beings can and should be encouraged early in life.
This year’s contest will include a special essay category for 14- to 15-year-olds who write about endangered species. Katherine Applegate, author of the popular Animorphs series and The One and Only Ivan has graciously agreed to provide winning entries in this category with signed copies of her new book, Endling #1: The Last.
Submissions will be accepted through April 30, and the winners will be announced on June 11, 2018. Please visit www.hennet.org for more details and instructions on how to enter.
