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 Contest encourages young people worldwide to artistically express their visions of peace.

     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.


District 24-D Peace Poster First Place Winner - “Power of Peace” 2009-2010

District Governor Lion Gary Rapier and Peace Poster Chairperson Lion Ruth Robertson are displaying the first place poster from the 2009-2010 peace poster contest.  Nine Lions Clubs submitted twelve peace posters for the District 24-D level competition.  The first place poster was submitted by the  Norfolk Host Lions Club and the artist is Anya Kaszubowski, a 13 year old 8th grader attending Norfolk Collegiate School.  Congratulations to Anya and to the Norfolk Host Lions Club.  This poster has been forwarded to the Chairperson of the Council of Governors of MD 24 for the next level of competition.
