                                                                                 Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International                                                                                     Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art                                                                                             contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their                                                                                    visions of peace. For 25 years, more than four million children from                                                                                        nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.

Each year’s art contest for kids 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.

 

     The theme for 2019-2020 Peace Poster Contest: 

"Journey of Peace”

Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible. 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
