PAL and APPA president, Bob Vetere, are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest. Students in grades 3rd -8th are invited to write a unique poem(s) about the joys and benefits of owning pets for a chance to win great prizes, including a $250 gift certificate for pet prizes for a student in each grade level, and a “by-line” in a nationally circulated publication.
Teachers, within the contest grade levels, are also highly encouraged to incorporate this national contest into their lessons plans and submit poems written by their students as one entry. The six winning students’ classrooms will each win a $1,000 scholarship to spend on pet-related education or to support a pet in their own classroom.
