A Poetry Contest For Kids Who Love Their Pets


When I heard about this contest, it spoke to me on so many levels. Encouraging children to express their creativity and their love are beautiful gifts, and using those gifts to practice kindness for animals is even greater.

This is the sixth year that an organization called Pets Add Life is holding a poetry contest for young caregivers of pets. It is open to children in grades 3 to 8. To enter, they simply submit a personal and original poem about their pet, what they love about their pet and why their pet brings them happiness. pet poetry contest for kids

One student per grade level will be awarded a $250 gift card and a byline in a national publication or online outlet. Additionally, each winner’s classroom will receive $1,000 to be used toward pet-related education. Teachers are encouraged to submit on behalf of their classrooms. Entries can be submitted online or via mail to:

Reno, NV 89511
