Do your students love their pets — and poetry?
Encourage them to enter the 7th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest beginning September 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015. Students in grades 3rd-8th are encouraged to write unique poems about the joys and benefits of owning pets of all types for a chance at top prizes.
Go to the PAL writing contest website for guidelines.
