Last Call For Submissions! Calling all creative kids! The American Pet Products Association is accepting poems for the fourth annual Pets Add Life Children's Poetry Contest now through Jan. 31.
Students in grades 3rd-8th are invited to write a unique poem about their pets, what they love about them, the joys they bring, and post it online at www.PetsAddLife.org or mail their final poem and submission form to: Pets Add Life, 661 Sierra Rose Dr., Reno, NV 89511. Deadline for submissions is Jan. 31 at 5 p.m. EST.
One student from each grade level (6 total) nationwide will win a $250 gift certificate for pet products, and a "by-line" in a nationally circulated publication. In addition, the six winning students' classrooms will each win a $1,000 scholarship to spend on pet related education.
In addition, teachers within contest grade levels are welcome to incorporate this national contest into their lesson plans, and submit poems in one entry, on behalf of his/her classroom.
