Los Angeles -- Young people are leading the animal rights
charge, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the burgeoning number of
young kids who are going vegan. That's why PETA Kids, PETA's division
dedicated to children, is announcing its 2013
Cutest Vegan Kid contest. As recently as last year, the contest was
named Cutest Vegetarian Kid, but as more and more kids learn about the
animal suffering and the profoundly detrimental effects that eating eggs and
dairy products can have on our health, a growing number of them are going
vegan. The first round, which begins on Monday, January 14, is open to anyone
and everyone who'd like to nominate their favorite vegan kid. The two
winners—one male and one female—will have the opportunity to appear in their
very own PETA Kids ad and will also receive a special prize pack filled with
goodies. In addition, announcements will be sent to their hometown media.
"All the kids who enter the contest are already winners
because they've made the switch to a healthier diet that's animal- and
Earth-friendly," says PETA Youth Marketing Manager Emily Rodriguez.
"And because healthier kids are generally happier kids, that makes them
More and more people go vegetarian and vegan every year.
Besides the indisputable health benefits of ditching meat and other unhealthy
animal products, vegans, on average, have a smaller carbon footprint than their
meat-eating counterparts, and each vegan saves the lives of more than 100
animals every year.
The nominations round runs from January 14 to 28 and is
followed by the voting round from January 30 to February 13. Voting on the
finalists will take place from February 15 to 22, and the two winners will be
announced on February 27. PETA Kids will select
winners based on several factors, including vote count. See full contest

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.
