PEACE POSTER WINNER- Yaretzi Medrano, a 7th grade student at Emerson Middle School inPomona, has taken the second step to becoming an internationally recognized artist by winning a district level competition.

Medrano’s poster was among more than 450,000 entries submitted worldwide in the annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs International is sponsoring the program to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere. Inspiration for the 12 year old from Pomona came from this year’s Peace Poster Contest Theme, “We Are All Connected”. The poster was selected by a panel of judges including all Club Presidents and Cabinet Members in the District for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme.
