The American Pet Products Association is accepting poems for the fourth annual Pets Add Life Children's Poetry Contest through Jan. 31.
Students in grades three to eight are invited to write a poem about their pets, what they love about them, the joys they bring and post them online at www.petsaddlife.org or mail their final poem and submission form to Pets Add Life, 661 Sierra Rose Drive, Reno, NV, 89511. Deadline for submissions is Jan. 31 at 5 p.m.
One student from each grade level (six total) nationwide will win a $250 gift certificate for pet products and a "byline" 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 the national contest into their lesson plans, and submit poems in one entry on behalf of his/her classroom.
