In preparation of the upcoming ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge and our efforts to reunite more lost pets with their owners than ever before, we are pleased to announce the opening of our annual Essay/Bookmark Contest featuring the important life saving topic of microchips. These contests are designed to engage and educate the children of Fresno and its surrounding areas in the importance of responsible pet guardianship.
“How do microchips help lost pets reunite with their owners?”
The essay contest is for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students and needs to be 200 words or less.
“Microchips help lost pets and their owners reunite.”
The bookmark contest is for 1st – 6th grade students.
Winning bookmarks will be printed and distributed as educational material throughout the year at all CCSPCA events.
All entries will be judged on clarity, originality, and aptness to the subject. Deadline for entries is April 30, 2014!
There will be 6 winners all together. The top entry winners of each contest will be awarded a certificate, prize medal, gift cards, and receive media spotlight. The winners will also display their essay/bookmark in the Education Hall and participate in the Award Ceremony held on Sunday, May 4, 2014 – the first day of “Be Kind to Animals Week.”
