The Pasadena Humane Society is celebrating Be Kind to Animals Week, May 3 to 9, with a poster-making contest that’s open to kids of all ages. The entry period started Monday, April 5, and continues until Friday, April 23.
Kids can choose from two themes for their entry posters: “Tag ’em,” and “Wild About Wildlife.”
“Tag ‘em” should show how people make sure their pets have the most up-to-date information in their ID tags or microchips. “Wild About Wildlife” should illustrate how people could positively interact with urban wildlife, such as the occasional squirrel in the tree, the skunk in the backyard or the coyote trotting down the street.
Participating kids will be in three categories: Primary, for Grades 2 to 5; Intermediate, Grades 6 to 8; and Senior, for Grades 9 to 12.
Your posters should not exceed 11-inches by 17-inches in size, must include the theme name, and can use any traditional medium such as crayons, colored pencils, watercolor, markers or acrylic paint. No photographic images or computer generated art will be accepted.
Artwork must also be the original work of the artist. No reproductions, tracing or 3D images will be accepted.
Entries will be judged on creativity, appearance and interpretation of the theme.
Pasadena Humane said there will be one winner for each category for each theme, and the winners will be announced on May 2 on social media.
Winners will receive a branded Pasadena Humane pair of socks, a fanny pack and dog leash, as well as a $25 Gift Certificate for the Pasadena Humane Merchandise Store.
