Calling all Kids for Pets Add Life Poetry Contest!

Ode to a dog on a log
Here's a contest that's open to children of the non-furry variety! For all young poets, the American Pet Product Association is now accepting poems for its 4th Annual Pets Add Life Children's Poetry Contest. Students in grades 3 through 8 are eligible to enter for the chance to win scholarship dollars and other pet prizes.

It's simple to enter! Kids are invited to write a unique poem about their pets -- what they love about them, the joys they bring --  and then post it online  or mail their poem and submission form to: Pets Add Life, 661 Sierra Rose Dr., Reno, NV 89511. Deadline for submissions is January 31, 2012 at 5 p.m. EST.

In addition, teachers are welcome to incorporate this national contest into their lesson plans, and submit poems in one entry, on behalf of his/her classroom.

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.

You can read some previous winning poems for inspiration, then upload your submission or mail this form with your entry. To learn more, visit

This post is sponsored by the Pets Add Life campaign and the American Pet Products Association. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the benefits and joys of pet ownership.
