Humane Summer School Is Now In Session! Enter Our Contest Today!

Do you want to learn about animals and some of the best ways to help them? All summer long, we will be releasing new lessons and activities so you can become a guardian for animals everywhere!

To kick off this exciting new campaign, we want to hear from you! Use your talents to let us (and the world) know how YOU make a difference for animals!

Contest: 

Do you love to write, tell stories, sing, or draw? Share with us how you actively take a stand for animals by creating an original essay, story, song OR drawing to address one or more of the topics below. Don’t forget to share images and/or a video of your work on Instagram and tag us @ida_international! Please post to your Instagram feed (no stories, please!), so we have a chance to see your fantastic work, and include your first name in your post. Open internationally. One entry per person, please.

If you do not have an Instagram account or if you’d prefer to email your submission, please send a PDF of your work or MP4 video file to julie@idausa.org

Here are some ideas to get you started on your essay, story, song, or drawing: 

  • What can you do to stop animal cruelty?
  • How can you help others adopt a vegan lifestyle?
  • Why do you choose not to wear fur?
  • What are the most rewarding and most challenging aspects of being an animal activist?
  • Why do you choose not to hunt animals?
