PEACE POSTER CONTEST
By Marianne Allen, District Peace Poster Chair
This year the theme of the Peace Poster Contest is “JOURNEY OF PEACE”. Young people-ages 11, 12, and 13– by November 15, 2019 are eligible to participate in the contest. This allows our young people to express their visions of peace through art in the Lions International Please Poster Contest. Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the contest in local schools and youth groups.
Please order your kits by October 1, 2019. You can contact Lions Clubs International and order the kit by either calling Club Supplies at 1-630-571-5466 or ordering the kit on line.
Participants can use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express their vision of peace. (No computer art is allowed) The works vary greatly and reflect the young artists’ life experiences and culture. Please
Club entries must be brought to the 2nd District meeting for judging. Please make sure that you follow the directions for labeling each poster entry.

The Multiple District winner must be submitted to the Public Relations Department of Lions Club International by December 15, 2019. The winner will be notified on or before February 1, 2020.
