Colorado Springs teen finalist for "America's Cutest Vegetarian"

19 year old Jason Lihani is one of the male finalists in PETA's Cutest Vegetarian Alive contest, sponsored by peta2, PETA's youth division.

Lihani beat out more than 1,200 contestants from across the U.S. He is a Colorado Springs native but currently goes to school at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He says he went vegetarian six years ago and adopted a fully vegan diet a year ago. An animal rights activist, Lihani has participated in anti-circus protests. He loves vegan food but says that his absolute favorite vegan treat is a "super strong soy mocha."

Lihani is a finalist to be "PETA's Cutest Vegetarian", but to win the contest now he needs your vote, you can do so by texting "Jason" to 73822. The winners, one male and one female, will be announced on June 6th. Each winner will get a professional photo shot and they'll star in a peta2 ad.
