Congratulations! The Lions Club’s sponsored entry created by Janci Zelaya has been chosen as a merit award winner in the 30th Annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
Approximately 600,000 children from 60 countries participated in this year’s Peace Poster Contest. The posters were judged at club, district and multiple district levels before reaching the international level, at which point they had been narrowed down to 123 posters. Based on creativity, originality and portrayal of the theme, “The Future of Peace,” your club’s entry was chosen as one of 23 merit award winners. As such, Janci Zelaya will receive US$500 and a certificate of merit.
The 23 merit award winners are from Brazil, China, Cyprus, England, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Romania, Thailand and the United States (California, Hawaii, Nevada, North Carolina, and Oregon). The grand prize winner will be announced at Lions Day with the United Nations in New York City on Saturday, March 24. Information about the grand prize winner will be posted on the Peace Poster section of the LCI website shortly thereafter.
