2023 Top 10 projects
Caitlin Thwaites & Ella Tait
Artwork. Year 8 from Chisnallwood Intermediate School.
The project is to show that animals cannot fight for themselves or control their future. The syringe represents the injections that the animals are forced to get, the cow and pig represent their slaughter for someone's dinner and the rabbit represents animal testing with cosmetics.
Speech. Year 9 from Hare Krishna School.
I absolutely dislike the fact that people in society eat animals. People generally say that we should all be kind to animals and treat them with respect, just as we want to feel respected. Still, those people eat meat, and I hate it. So, to try to stop this cruel act, I wrote a speech about the importance of reducing meat consumption, only in the pure hope that my speech will persuade people to stop eating meat.
Artwork. Year 7 from Murray's Bay Intermediate school.
In my project/artwork, I incorporated various art techniques such as sketching, watercolor, color pencil, alcohol markers, and digital art. These techniques were used to highlight the potential future consequences of animal harm and environmental pollution.
Poster. Year 13 from Albany Senior High School.
I have created a poster about adopting pets instead of buying them from breeders.
Song. Year 10 from Palmerston North Girls High School.
This is a song I wrote to help people understand about 'Think Kind'.
Comic. Year 8 from Tauranga Adventist School.
A comic I hand-drew about schools promoting vegetarianism and how that changed a factory farming company to be more animal-friendly.
Speech. Year 7 from Papatoetoe Intermediate.
I learned about the harm that is done to animals. I chose this project to explain to people why it is important to be kind to animals.
Artwork. Year 6 from St. Benedicts School Khandallah.
One girl is very angry at animals and is being mean. We need to tell her to stop this. She is making the puppy sad. The other girl is being kind and loves her cat, which makes him happy.
Advert. Year 11 from Wellington Girls College.
Poster. Year 7 from Wentworth College.
I, as a human, decided to express my gratitude towards all the animals and about the cruelty and pain they are going through while humans are spoiled and want the world only to themselves and see animals as toys or food. With a creative selection of art techniques and many brushes and pens, I have created and researched for weeks about animal cruelty and how humans simply use them as if they are not living things. In conclusion, we have to do something to stop animal cruelty and save those innocent lives used and trapped in despair.
