Norfolk, Va. – Who’s the cutest vegan of them all? Starting today, PETA Kids’ 2018 Cutest Vegan Kid competition is open for nominations. The annual competition seeks to recognize special kids age 12 and under who go above and beyond to help animals and demonstrate that there’s nothing cuter than compassion.

The winner will receive a special prize pack filled with goodies, including a personalized trophy, and the first runner-up will receive a PETA Kids T-shirt. Both will be featured on PETA Kids’ website.

“There are so many ways in which kids can help animals, from going vegan to avoiding circuses that bully animals into performing,” says PETA Senior Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg. “All the nominees in PETA Kids’ contest prove that there’s nothing cuter than a little kid with a huge heart.”

PETA Kids—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that in addition to the indisputable health benefits of ditching meat, eggs, and dairy “products,” going vegan reduces your carbon footprint and saves the lives of more than 100 animals each year.

The nomination round runs from May 7 to 18 and will be followed by the voting round, from May 21 to June 1. Voting for the finalists will take place from June 4 to 15, and the winner will be announced on June 18. PETA Kids will select the winner based on several factors, including vote count.

“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
