Peace On Earth In A Picture

For the last 30 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster contest in local schools and youth groups. The art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.

The theme of the 2017-2018 Peace Poster Contest is “The Future of Peace.” Students age 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, 2017 were eligible to participate.

The Eugene Downtown Lions Club resumed its participation in the Peace Poster Contest this year when Lion Susan Pfanner took on the job of chair to organize the local effort. She found Ms. Amy Samson, 6th and 7th  grade art Class teacher at the Arts and Technology Academy of Eugene, who was very interested in having her students participate.

A total of 20 pictures were collected from the students and brought to the November 15th Downtown Lions Club meeting and Lion Susan picked six club members to be the judges. The three best posters were shown including the winning poster which was made by 7th grader Ciena Brodsky.  Ciena described her poster as “Uniting the universe through a vision of peace.”

Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international.  The International winner receives a certificate and a cash award of $500.00 for their effort.  The youngsters were challenged to depict their vision of “The Future of Peace” so win or not they all gained some insight into the true meaning of peace.
