Lakeway Elementary students entries chosen for Lions Club Peace Poster Contest


LIONS CLUB PEACE POSTER WINNERS -- The Littleton Lions Club sponsored a Peace Poster Contest at the Mildred C. Lakeway Elementary School for Grade 6. The theme this year was "Peace, Love and Understanding." The contest is an opportunity for Lions to work with youth in the community to stress the importance of peace, tolerance and international understanding and encourages young people, ages 11-13, to think about peace, creatively express what it means to them and to share their own unique visions with the world. Above, Roxanne Bowker, club secretary and chair of the peace poster contest, presents certificates to, from left, third-place winner Hailey Beard, first-place winner Nicoria Johnson, and second-place winner Austin Marquis. Their artwork was on display Nov. 16 in Manchester, N.H. at the District 44N Cabinet Meeting, along with posters by children from other New Hampshire clubs. The posters are evaluated on three criteria at each level of judging: originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme, Peace, Love and Understanding. The International Grand Prize winner receives a trip to an award ceremony where he/she will receive $5,000 and an award. Two family members (one being the winner's parent or legal guardian) and the sponsoring Lions club president or a club member will accompany the winner to the award ceremony. Twenty-three Merit Award winners will each receive $500 and a certificate of achievement. Lakeway's art teacher, Tanya Patterson incorporated the contest into her lessons on effective poster design and symbols of peace through art.
