In honor of World Vegetarian Day, celebrated October 1, a contest to encourage people to go vegetarian for the month of October is being held. Non-vegetarians who pledge to go meat-free for at least one day can register online to be eligible to win cash prizes that range from $250 to $1000. North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS), the contest’s sponsor, established World Vegetarian Day in 1977, and vegetarian events and festivals are scheduled throughout the country in order to promote vegetarianism. World Vegetarian Day also kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month during the month of October.
