5th Annual National Children’s Pet Poetry Contest
Those furry paws
And friendly face
Are one in a million
That meow he does
When he wants food
Those eyes he gives
So kind and sweet
When I look at him
My heart beats faster
When he sleeps near me
He warms me up
He greets me from school
He is my cat
And no one can replace that
This poem is just one of the many wonderful poems created by children for the Pets Add Life 5th Annual Children’s Poetry Contest. The Pets Add Life (PAL) campaign is designed to demonstrate the joys and benefits of pet ownership, thus driving increased adoption of pets and responsible ownership of pets. PAL is produced by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). The Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest helps to inspire the next generation to express their love and appreciation as pet lovers.
If you have a pet-loving child in your house perhaps you can encourage them to try their hand at writing down a poem in honor of their furry friends. Their efforts can pay off too because your child could win a $250 gift certificate for pet products, a “by-line” in a nationally circulated publication, and a $1,000 scholarship to spend on pet-related education or to support a pet in their classroom!
Six winners will be selected, one for each level from grades 3 through 8. Teachers are also welcome to submit entries for their entire classroom.
