Lions Peace Poster Contest
Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest. The theme of the 2018-19 Peace Poster Contest was” Kindness Matters”. Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.
Donna Jenne, Grand Conductress and Conductress in no. 17, Brenda Stone, Grand Secretary and Secretary in no. 17, and Donna Mitchell, Associate Grand Conductress and Worthy Matron in no. 17, cut a cake celebrating the start of a new year.
This year Donna Patina Pabon’s poster placed first from among 34 submissions from Knowlton Academy and St. Edouard School. Donna is a student at Knowlton Academy.
Second place was obtained by Maika Hadlock, also a student at Knowlton Academy. The vote was extremely close and the decisions were very hard to make
