PETA Citizen Journalism Award on!

Written by PETA | June 11, 2008

Last fall, PETA announced a partnership with, a site that promotes the open exchange of ideas—something we’re all for.


Now we’re taking it to a new level. Announcing—drum roll please—the PETA Citizen Journalism Award! Each month, we’ll name a title. All you have to do is write an article based on that title. If we think yours makes the best case, not only will you win a customized award plus a $50 gift certificate that you can use to snag swag from the PETA catalog but we’ll also feature your article right here on The PETA Files. That’s a pretty big deal, right? (Please say yes—those of us who post here have such fragile egos!)

To give you a head start, this month’s title is “Would you eat animal-stem-cell–grown ‘clean meat’ to protect animals and the environment?” If you don’t quite get what that’s about, be sure to read about our $1 million challenge first. If you need more information to help you write your article, there’s a ton of useful, fascinating stuff on
