World Animal Day - Art Competition
To celebrate World Animal Day, Animal Aid Abroad are putting the focus on our young people and their role in understanding and appreciating our animal planet.
We want to celebrate our relationship with the animals that share our lives and the ways in which they enrich us.
For AAA it is also an important opportunity to speak out and make people aware of the millions of animals that work around the globe. From the streets of India, to the brick kilns in Nepal, to the mines in Tanzania, to the deserts of Pakistan and everywhere in-between, working animals are a big part of peoples livelihoods.
On this special day we aim to help raise the status of working animals and to improve their welfare standards around the world.
We put the call out to our junior support base and we were not disappointed. We received a number of excellent art pieces and found our job to choose 3 winners very difficult. All entries were from Primary School students so we revised our categories to Yr 1-2, Yr 3-4 and Yr 5-6.
We are very pleased to announce our 2017 junior winners of our WAD art competition:
Yr 1-2 - Amelia with her picture of a customs sniffer dog at Perth airport
Yr 3-4 - Stella with her picture of Simpson's donkey that worked in the Galipoli campaign to transport sick and injured men to safety.
Yr 5-6 - Nevada with her drawing of a draught horse pulling a cart on a farm
