Tenth Anniversary
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 that year.

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.

To be considered for the BILL ROSENBERG AWARD, submit a 1-2 page typed statement of your accomplishments to help stop suffering of farmed animals. You may also send up to three pages of supporting materials, including recommendations from animal rights leaders or others who are familiar with your work.
