Vote for Your Favorite Chimp Drawing
Nearly 300 students in grades K-12 entered the 2010 Chimps Deserve Better Drawing Contest, created to celebrate chimpanzee sanctuaries and to draw attention to the plight of the more than 1,000 chimpanzees living in laboratories, used in entertainment or kept as pets across the country.
Artists were encouraged to create drawings reflecting the 2010 theme, "A Tribute to Chimpanzee Sanctuaries."
It was an extremely difficult task, but eight drawings were selected as prize-winning finalists.
Before we reveal which two drawings were chosen as Grand Prize winners by celebrity judge and "MUTTS" cartoonist Patrick McDonnell though, you have the chance to choose this year's People's Choice winner!
