The Erie County SPCA has announced the theme for its 126th Poster and Creative Writing Contest: Emergency-prepared pets. 

The theme stresses "the importance of ensuring pets are part of a family’s preparedness plan." 

The contest is for students grades one through eight. Public school, home school, and faith-based school students in Erie County are encouraged to participate. There's also a category for special education students.

In May, students can win cash prizes and awards during a ceremony at the new SPCA shelter in West Seneca.

Submission deadline is Friday, April 20th.
