Voice For The Horse is pleased to announce we have just closed our 2014 War Horse Children's Writing Competition where we were successful in reaching our goal of connecting children throughout four different countries to include the U.S.A., Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada! The essay submissions were fantastic ans we look forward to presenting a PDF Book which will feature our young writers who were all in the age category of 12 and under!
Voice For The Horse will no longer be featuring Children's Annual Writing Competition's based on the recent development of the VFTH STRONGER Project. We believe this will present the opportunity for more children to become involved in the study of horses while offering the opportunity for kids to hone their own creative and artistic talents which will engage them in the team effort required for this project. However, annually we will be putting new subjects of equine studies on our web site for children to reference for their STRONGER Project Music Video Submissions.
Our goal is to record a new world class equine inspired song to pare with our subject of the year, for example our 2015 theme "The Gift" where we have music artists Templeton Thompson and Tiffany Desrosiers set to co-write. We invite those who have an interest in the VFTH STRONGER Project to contact us and learn more about your opportunity to support our music/video productions.Your Sponsorship offers the opportunity to be noted on our Record Label ~ Horses Help Kids and to include on the Official Music Video we will produce, which offers world wide exposure for your company/business!
