Think Kind Competition 2019

Entries are now open for the 2019 Think Kind Competition! The annual competition is run by the NZ Vegetarian Society, and it is open to all currently-enrolled primary, intermediate, and secondary-aged students. Students can use their unique talents to help the animals, by:

writing something (like a poem)
drawing something (like a poster)
creating something (like a short film)
startingsomething (like a petition)

The possibilities are endless! We encourage students to surprise us.

NZ Vegetarian Society President Julia Clements says, ‘The world needs more kindness. Last year we had children expressing themselves through hundreds of different projects, like letter-writing campaigns, poster making, speeches, videos, holding stalls, etc., and the children learnt about how their actions can make a change. The students were then able to share their learning with friends and family. It’s very exciting when whole communities get behind the competition, and everyone enjoys voting for their favourite project in October!’

National Office Coordinator Viktória Lencsés Spear says: ‘The best projects are the ones that give a clear understanding of the topic. I love reading informative essays, short stories about animals, looking at drawings, and watching creative videos. I would love to see more action projects! My favourite entry so far was a hip hop video about healthy eating - the song and performance was original, creative, and catchy, while the lyrics included some good facts.’

Think Kind is a fun way for students to:

learn about the food they eat and the impact of their choices on their health, the environment, and animals
gain skills in research, media, or leadership
win great prizes for themselves and their school

Every student who enters will receive a certificate and a prize. The overall winner will be determined by a people’s choice vote, and will be announced on 1st October, World Vegetarian Day. The entry that wins the People’s Choice Award will receive $1,000 for their school.

Sponsors include Hell Pizza, Proper Crisps, Goodness Me, Linda McCartney, and New Way.

Go to www.vegetarian.org.nz for guidelines. Students must submit their entries online by 12 August.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@vegetarian.org.nz.
