Kids Get Crafty Schools Competition

National Pet Month launches its competition for schools and childrens groups

As National Pet Month launches, we’re calling on the nation’s children to get crafty and design a poster for the charity.   

Each year during National Pet Month, schools up and down the country take part in our competition which celebrates the love we have for our pets but also puts the spotlight on how to care for them well. 

According to recent research, over 68% of young people have a pet in their household and 76% think it’s important to be taught about caring for their pets[1].  In ‘Kids Get Crafty’ we’re asking children to develop a poster based on our Top Tips for good pet care making education fun.

Phil Sketchley, National Pet Month Chairman adds: “Children love talking and learning about animals, this is a fun and simple way to teach them about their needs and how to look after them properly.”

There’s a great prize for the winning entry too.  The winner will receive a visit from the National Pet Month team and local pet care expert for a talk and presentation ceremony. The poster will also be used throughout the 2014 campaign and there will be National Pet Month t-shirts for all involved.

The deadline for entries is Friday 12 July.
