Bay Roberts Peace Poster winners recognized for efforts
On Nov. 15 the Bay Roberts Lions Club celebrated eight artists from All Hallows Elementary in North River, Amalgamated Academy in Bay Roberts, Holy Redeemer Elementary in Spaniards Bay and St. Peter Elementary in Upper Island Cove.
Approximately 180 students from Grades 6-8 participated in creating a poster to represent the theme “Kindness Matters” for the annual Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest.
Judges Lion Ivy Pynn (Peace Poster Chair), Corey Morgan and Robyn Newhook had the difficult task of selecting one top poster and one honourable mention poster from each of the four participating schools. Pam Parsons, MHA for Harbour Grace-Port de Grave, also attended the awards ceremony and acknowledged each winner with a certificate.
The four winning posters will advance to the district level contest. Thank you to everyone who participated and good luck to the local winners.
