2002 POSTER CONTEST

In recognition of "Be Kind to Animals Week" which takes place during the first week in May each year, students in grades 6-8 at Resurrection School in Gerritsen Beach were invited to submit artwork with a theme (and slogan) promoting the adoption of homeless animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, etc). Each year thousands of animals are killed in New York City’s municipal shelters because not enough people are adopting them. Even though shelters have a wide variety of animals, young and old, big and small, mixed breed and pure who are desperately waiting for good homes, people continue to buy rather than adopt. Students were encouraged to visit the website of the Center for Animal Care and Control (CACC) to see some of the animals they would be helping.

The artwork was displayed at the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh on Coyle Street in Brooklyn during the month of May along with pictures of actual animals awaiting adoption at the CACC.

The first place winner received a $50 Savings Bond. Second and third place winners received the book A Day, A Dog. Honorable Mentions received certificates and robotic calculators with the quote "Humanity advances only as it becomes more humane" (a reminder of the importance of kindness and compassion). Teacher Felicia Wiggins who has been a loyal and dedicated friend to animals received a subscription to KIND News for the upcoming school year. Winning artists were as follows:

First Place: Michael Bonsignore – 7th Grade

Second Place: Paul Claro – 8th Grade

Third Place: Emily Hogan- 6th Grade
