5) VEGETARIAN VIDEO SCHOLARSHIPS - 2014 WINNERS $1,000 IN PRIZES FOR 2015

Taylor is a winner of The Vegetarian Resource Group Video Contest. Taylor stated: I went vegetarian three years ago when meat began to hurt my stomach after eating it. After only the first week, I felt so much better. Since becoming vegetarian I've discovered all the environmental and economic benefits of vegetarianism, which in addition to health reasons, have led me to continue the diet.

See video at [ http://www.vrg.org/veg_videos.php#koch ]

Deadline for the next contest is July 15, 2015. See:
