Win-Win - World Vegetarian Day Sets Stage for $1000 Go Meatless Prize

Step aside Hillshire Farms for World Vegetarian Day, a commeration which began in 1977, that has since then celebrated the health-supporting and life-affirming benefits of vegetarianism. October 1st is World Vegetarian Day and is the annual kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month (October is also National Fire Safety Month, National Seafood Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month).  

Vegetarians are often the first to bestow the benefits of a vegetarian diet including perceived and proven health benefits, its impact on reducing meat consumption and therefore saving animals' lives and its impact on preservation efforts for the Earth.

To encourage non-vegetarians to give meatless eating a try, the North American Vegetarian Society has developed a prize-winning contest. Non-vegetarians who pledge to abstain from all meat, fish and fowl during Vegetarian Awareness Month (October) will be entered in a random drawing for cash prizes. The top winner will get $1000 in cash.

One winner will be chosen in each of the following three categories: One day $250 -- One week $500 -- One month $1,000. You can enter the "Give Vegetarianism a Try" contest at
