College scholarships for vegetarians

Dozens of student volunteers come to Rikki's Refuge to help care for the animals. Many of them are preparing for college. We just found out about a great scholarship being offered by the Vegetarian Resource Group.

If you are graduating from high school in spring 2007 and have promoted vegetarianism in your school and/or community, you could win a $5,000 scholarship. Two winners will be chosen.

Applicants will be judged on having shown compassion, courage, and a strong commitment in promoting a peaceful world through a vegetarian diet/lifestyle. (Full application info).

Deadline is February 20, 2007. That seems like a long way off, but why not start your essay now during your summer break?

Need inspiration? Come on out and spend the day working among the pigs, cows, and chickens.
