Easton Lions Peace Poster Contest
"The Future of Peace" 2017-18
Each year the Easton Lions sponsor the local Peace Poster Contest in the Easton Middle School. Posters must be completed by mid-October to be ready for judging at the local and district levels.
Young people – ages 11, 12 and 13 years old – are encouraged to express their visions of peace through art in the Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the contest in local schools and youth groups.
Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express a different theme about peace each year. The works vary greatly and reflect the young artists’ life experiences and culture.
Judges from the art, media, youth development and humanitarian communities select 24 international finalists representing the more than 350,000 children who participate annually. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, social media, news outlets and traveling exhibits.
The Easton Lions Club with support from the Easton Schools sponsor the annual Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest in Easton. Posters are judged locally first at the Easton Lions Club, where the top three local winners are awarded prizes. The winning poster will advance through the district, multiple district and international levels of competition if the poster is declared the best at each stage. At the international level one international grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners will be selected. The grand prize includes a cash award of $5,000, plus a trip for the winner and two family members to a special award ceremony. The 23 merit award winners will each receive a certificate and a cash award of $500.
