Norfolk, Va. -- Who doesn't love watching Woody Harrelson
and Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain light up the silver
screen? PETA's more than 3 million members and supporters certainly do. That's
because Harrelson and Chastain, both vegans, are the reigning king and queen of
PETA's annual Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest. Now, the boy or girl next
door can bask in the spotlight, too. That's because PETA has just launched its 2013
Sexiest Vegan Next Door contest to give every person who has made the smart
decision to go vegan a chance to shine. Two winners (one male and one female)
will each receive a trip for two to Maui, Hawaii, courtesy of Humane Travel.
In previous years, the contest was open to both vegans and
vegetarians. But because more people are going vegan these days than you can
shake a carrot stick at, this year's contest is limited to vegans.
"Compassion for others is not only a sign of strength
but also a big turn-on," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.
"Everyone who enters is already a winner because they know that the best
thing that anyone can do for animals, the planet, and their own health is to go
Entrants must be at least 22 years of age. The entry round
ends at 12 noon ET on March 8, 2013. Vegans (no previous finalists, please!)
can enter the contest using this online
form. Public voting to help PETA determine the finalists runs from
March 11 to 29. The finalists—10 men and 10 women—will be notified and featured
on PETA's websites by 12 noon ET on April 15. Voting on the finalists to help
PETA determine the winners will run from April 15 to May 3. Winners will be
chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count, and will be
announced on May 9. See the full contest details here.

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.
