To honor the millennial year, which has been declared The Year of the Humane Child, The Fund for Animals is sponsoring essay contests for students at the Elementary, Middle, and High School levels. In each age group a first prize of a $100 US savings bond and a second prize of a $50 US savings bond will be awarded.

Elementary School (grades 4-5): write an essay of 200 words or less as if you were a deer during deer hunting season.

Middle school (grades 6-8); write an essay of 500 words or less as if you were a deer during deer hunting season.

High school (grades 9-12); write an essay of 750 words or less answering the question, Why should animal cruelty laws protect dogs and cats but not animals who live in the wild? Take into account that animals in the wild have the same sensibility to fear and pain as companion animals, i.e. similar sensory organs, nervous systems, and brains.

Elementary and Middle school entries will be judged on language skills, empathy, and humane sensibility. High school entries will be judged on the use of evidence and logical argument, language skills, and humane sensibility.

Deadline is December 1, 2000.
