Honoring Young Champions of Farmed Animals
Each year, the BILL ROSENBERG AWARD honors a young person under the age
of 18 who has made a substantial contribution to ending abuse of animals
raised for food.
The Award consists of a plaque and a $300 cash prize.
The BILL ROSENBERG AWARD was established in 1990 in
memory of a young champion of farmed animals who passed away earlier
At the age of 13, after reading about the plight of
animals, Bill decided to end their exploitation by not eating them. At
14, he joined FARM and other animal rights groups. In addition to
educating his friends and family, he addressed the general public
through literature and demonstrations.
At the age of 16, he organized a Mother's Day March
Against Veal. At 17, Bill founded the first-ever animal rights club at
his high school. He educated his fellow students on animal rights issues
and actions they could take to reduce animal abuse.
Bill Rosenberg believed that, no matter how young a
person was, s/he could help create a kinder world. The winners of the
BILL ROSENBERG AWARD have carried on this tradition.
Past winners of the BILL ROSENBERG AWARD are: Kathryn
Blomgren, Michael Markarian, David Berman, Katy Reagan, Marc Freligh,
Danny Seo, Ella Magers, Paul Shapiro, Chu Hui Cha, and Patrick Kwan.
