Eligibility: Any student worldwide aged 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, 2013
Each year, 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.
The theme of the 2013-14 Peace Poster Contest is “Our World, Our Future.”
Participants can 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.
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 communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.
Any student worldwide aged 11, 12 or 13 on November 15 2013 is eligible to participate.
One international grand prize winner will receive US$5,000 and a trip to a special award ceremony with the sponsoring club president and two family members at Lions Day with the United Nations (subject to change).
Moreover, each of the 23 merit award winners will receive a cash award of US$500 and a certificate of achievement.
