Announcing the WHS - Ozaukee Campus'
Be Kind to Animals Week
Poster, Poetry, and Photography Contest
"OPEN HEARTS AND HOMES"
Be Kind to Animals Week is the oldest celebrated week in the nation! Recognized officially by the 108th Congress in 1915, this special week continues to remind us of the things animals do to enhance our lives.
The theme for 2013 is “Open Hearts and Homes!” By opening our hearts and homes, we can show animals the compassion they deserve and be their forever family who they'll love unconditionally. Working together, we could create a world that is fair and peaceful for both people and animals alike. This year's theme "Open Hearts and Homes," is about illustrating ways that we can love animals and provide a safe, loving home for animals in need.
Each year, the Ozaukee Campus encourages young people to join our celebration by entering our poster, poetry, and photography contests. Click here for the official 2013 contest entry guidelines.
All winners were recognized at a special ceremony held at the Wisconsin Humane Society in anticipation of Be Kind to Animals Week in May and their artwork will appear in a book that will be available for order. Check out the official rules.
Know a teacher who is a special advocate for animals? Nominate him or her for our Humane Educator of the Year. This teacher will be invited to the Be Kind to Animals ceremony to be honored with the award winning artwork.
