CLEARWATER – In honor of Be Kind to Animals Week, the Humane Society of Pinellas is hosting a photography contest for kids.
The contest will run through May 31 and is open to all children between the ages of 6 and 16.
Children and teens can enter by submitting a photo they took of a pet being treated kindly – or is just happy. There will be two age groups: 6 to 11 years and 11 to 16 years. Prizes will be awarded in each age group and the winner will be featured in various publications including HSP’s social media and 2014 Celebration of Companionship Calendar.
To enter, email the photo to Megan@Humane
Pinellas.org or hand-deliver or mail it to HSP, 3040 State Road 590, Clearwater, FL 33759.
Photos will be judged by fellow photography enthusiasts and will be based on photo quality and creativity.
“We are pleased to offer this contest,” said Megan Kempshall in a press release. Kempshall is education outreach specialist. “It gives children the opportunity to show us, through pictures, their relationships with their pets and animals. We believe strongly in the benefits of pet ownership and this program helps celebrate this important relationship.”
