Young artists grades 1-8 have until February 1st to submit their artwork for the 6th Annual Bidawee “Love Your Pet Contest & Expo in Westhampton, NY. Entries can be in any medium, including drawing, painting, photos and sculpture, but must be submitted with the proper form, which can be downloaded at www.bideawee.org/loveyourpet.

The first 300 will be placed on exhibit at the Bideawee Adoption Center, 118 Old Country Rd., Westhampton, NY 11977 Feb. 7-14. Visitors can cast their vote for favorite entry for a donation of $5, with proceeds going toward care of the animals there.

According to Amy Hrantios, associate director of partnerships at the facility, prizes including gift cards from Splish Splash, Tanger Outlets, Dave & Busters, and more, will be awarded in four age categories; grades 1 & 2, 3 & 4, 5 & 6, and 7 & 8. Winners in each division will be announced on the Bideawee facebook page Feb. 15th. The winner receiving the most “likes” will then receive a $100 gift card from Target.

Last year, the organization received 450 submissions from students throughout Long Island. Entries can be dropped off in person at the adoption center daily between 9am-5pm, as well as mailed in.
