Norfolk, Va. – Do you know a kid who cares about animals and the planet? If so, invite them to grab some markers and draw a picture showing what vegan eating and climate change mean to them—and to enter their drawing into PETA Kids’ Liberation Doodle Contest by December 5. The first-of-its-kind art contest seeks to raise awareness among young people of animal agriculture’s immense contribution to the climate crisis.

The winner will receive a Nintendo Switch, and their submission will be turned into a PETA Kids sticker that will be shared with thousands of people across the country. The first runner-up will receive a PETA Kids T-shirt and a MERGE cube, an educational holographic toy that kids can hold and interact with. Both designs will be featured on the PETA Kids website.

“This contest is an opportunity for kind kids to illustrate on the page the type of world they’d like to see,” says PETA Director of Student Campaigns and Influence Rachelle Owen. “PETA Kids is putting out a call for cool designs from creative young minds that show why everyone should go vegan.”

PETA Kids—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. The group notes that ditching meat, eggs, and dairy saves the lives of nearly 200 animals every year and is the single most important thing a person can do for the environment in the face of global climate change.

All entries must be submitted by December 5, and the winner and runner-up will be notified on December 12. To learn how to enter, please 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
