From Farm Animal Reform Movement,

Patrick Kwan of Brooklyn, NY, has been selected as the winner of FARM's 1999 Bill Rosenberg Award, according to Riki Robbins, Chair of the Award Committee.

The Award, consisting of a plaque and a $250 check, is awarded each year for outstanding contribution to farmed animal liberation before the age of 18. It honors the memory of a young FARM activist who died in 1990. Past winners include Mike Markarian of the Fund For Animals, Paul Shapiro of Compassion Over Killing, and Danny Seo, featured recently in the Washington Post.

Patrick's interest in animal liberation began in 1992, at the age of ten, when he came across some animal rights literature left behind in his classroom. He became outraged at the suffering of animals raised and slaughtered for food. He founded the Brooklyn Technical High School Animal Rights Club and coordinated the Great American Meatout observance in his school.

Patrick feels that teaching his peers about animal liberation plants seeds for a better future for the animals. He spearheaded a campaign against dissection at his school. As a volunteer coordinator for New York City's Animal Defense League, he organizes protests against the fur industry and vivisection.

Next year, Patrick plans to enter college and major in environmental science. His role in the movement is likely to grow extensively.
