Los Angeles -- The Leughmyers of Columbia City, Ind., have
always known that their daughter, Ciera, was the cutest kid
around. The same goes for the Andersons of Fairfield, Iowa, and their
6-year-old son, Vaughn. But now it's official. That's because Ciera and
Vaughn have been chosen as the winners of PETA Kids 2013 Cutest Vegan Kids
contest. They beat out more than 120 other kids 12 and younger in the
inaugural year that the competition was limited to vegans, thanks to the
fast-growing number of kids who don't eat meat or unhealthy and cruelly
obtained eggs and dairy products. Ciera and Vaughn have each won a prize pack
and the opportunity to appear in their very own PETA
"Ciera's and Vaughn's radiance is no accident—it's the
result of their healthy diet and their kindness toward others, no matter the
species," says PETA Youth Marketing Manager Emily Rodriguez. "All our
entrants were already winners because they spare the suffering and lives of
animals every time they sit down to eat."
Ciera is already a seasoned activist, having handed out
leaflets and discussed animal rights with other children as well as adults. Her
philosophy is very simple: Animals are her friends, and she doesn't eat her
friends. She knows that if something contains animal products, it means that an
animal suffered. Ciera's "brothers" and "sisters" include
two dogs, two cats, 10 rats, four mice, and one fish—all of whom were rescued.
Vaughn went vegan at 5, all on his own, after being raised a
vegetarian from birth. Although he loves animals, he never asks to go to the
zoo because he believes that animals should be free and not caged. Vaughn's
commitment to a vegan lifestyle has inspired his 4-year-old sister also to go
vegan, and he has inspired no fewer than five adults to go either vegan
Winners were selected based on several factors, including
vote count. For more information, please visit PETAKids.com.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
