Peace Poster Winners

On Saturday evening, 7 November, the winners of the District 410B Peace Poster Competition received their certificates from DG Lilian Mc Clarty. The function was held at the Union Club and was very well attended.

Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This Contest encourages young people worldwide to artistically express their visions of peace. The theme of the 2009-10 Peace Poster Contest is “The Power of Peace.” Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.

Promoting the Arts

Each year’s contest consists of an original theme incorporating peace. Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express the theme. The works created are unique and express the young artists’ life experiences and culture.

Spreading Peace and International Understanding

Twenty-four international finalists are selected each year, representing the work of more than 350,000 young participants worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibits around the world.

Judging

Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.

On Saturday 7 November the winners of the District 410B Peace Poster competition were annou8nced. They are:

First Kinson Xiao Jian Li
