Peace Poster

This contest has been running for several years. Any Lions club can run a contest in a local school or youth group to illustrate a phrase involving 'Peace' which changes each year. The posters cannot include any writing or political or religious symbols so that the entries from young people from any country in the world can be judged on an equal basis. Each Lions club can put forward a winning entry which then goes on to be judged alongside others in the South West District to go forward to the Great Britain and Ireland contest. Finally, the entries go to be judged internationally, the eventual winner being given the prize of attending the Lions day at the United Nations in New York plus a cash prize. Full details are here.

Here's the winning entry from Swanmead Community School for the theme 'A Celebration of Peace' (2016).
