Have you ever thought “there oughta be a law” to protect animals? Well, now is your chance to make your idea reality!
The Humane Society Legislative Fund (HSLF) knows some of the best ideas for legislation come from “citizen legislators” who are animal-lovers like you, so we’re asking for your input for a new federal bill to help animals. Your concept could become the winning entry in the HSLF’s first-ever “There Oughta Be a Law” contest!
The winning entry will be chosen by a distinguished panel of judges: Reps. Jim Moran (D-Va.) and John Campbell (R-Calif.), and HSLF President, Mike Markarian. HSLF will announce the winner at the next Party Animals—our nationwide, house party event—on October 25. Join the party and you will be the first to know the first-ever winner!
The winner will receive a two-day trip to Washington, D.C. that will include a meeting with HSLF staff to discuss his or her proposed bill, a visit to Capitol Hill to lobby federal lawmakers and congressional staff, and a special feature in an upcoming edition of HSLF's bimonthly newsletter “Humane Activist.”
The contest ends at midnight EDT on October 5, 2009. Review the rules for submissions. Complete and submit your entry below.
