We have our winners!

Action for greyhound competition winners announced!

February 3rd, 2021

Thank you to everyone who entered the Action for Greyhounds Competition. We had some incredible entries!

Our six winners, who will each receive a Garmin Vivofit Jr 2 smart watch, are:

Violet – 8

I started a petition to ban greyhound racing. I saw some Auckland Blues and All Blacks rugby players so I asked them to sign the petition too. I’m still working on getting lots more signatures.

Hannah – 9

I made a poster to help stop greyhound racing. I hope you enjoy it. I learned a lot about greyhounds from the Animal Squad newsletter!

Mahi – 9

I wrote an article along with a picture I drew. It tells about why greyhound racing is hurting them. Greyhounds are caring, gentle and loving. I am trying to convince my parents to adopt a Greyhound because we could give them a loving home.

Madelynn – 9

I wrote

Pet me don’t bet on me #bangreyhoundracing

on the driveway in chalk.

Bella – 10

I wrote a poem about how wonderful greyhounds are and why greyhound racing needs to be banned in New Zealand.

Katiya – 10

I sent a card to Aaron Hawkins, our mayor, and Jacinda Ardern asking them to stop greyhound racing.


Congratulations to our winners and a big thank you to all those who entered. Together, we can ban greyhound racing for good!
