Title: Picture/Poster Competition??
Post by: Trudes on January 27, 2011, 11:45:29 AM
How about a picture/poster competition in the schools we have a talk in. We could have categories say:
1. draw a Picture/Poster about responsible pet ownership
2. draw a picture of your pet.
3. draw any picture.

We could have a small prize for each winner and a rosette,maybe 50p per entry. We could display the winning poster/pictures & some entries on our forum and maybe use the pet ownership one at events?

Just a thought to raise some funds  ;D

Nice idea Trude  :clap:

Maybe one of the categories could be "the pet you'd like to have" for those who haven't got animals at home?

Pez had some badges, maybe see if she still has them. I guess we would have to check with the school that they are happy for us to ask for money.

Something we could do is maybe get some new thank you cards printed with the winners photos. The key would be to get media interest and perhaps look at sponsorship from a printer and also work out how they will be judged x

I would go to the school with these options:

Money entry for donation
Have as part of a dress down/ dress up as pets day (this way the money from that can be donated.)
Have an entry fee as optional or have a general donation - could be item for tombola, cash, dog food, blanket whatever.

do you want me to get hold of those childrens activity books (they have car stickers, pens and pencils) - I need to touch base with the council's animal welfare person again anyway soon
