Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest Exhibit
Through June 2009

Winning peace contest posters from 1988-2007, representing winners from countries all over the world, are on currently on display.
     Established in 1988, the Lions International Peace Contest has attracted over 4,500,000 applicants ages 11-13. Each applicant has been sponsored by a Lions Club in his or her town or city. Lions Clubs enlist the help of schools, boys and girls community organizations, religious education leaders, and other organizations in finding applicants.
     All posters must be the work of the child who is the applicant. Posters must also conform in size and represent the theme chosen for that year. Entries are judges at the local, district, and multiple district levels before the grand prize winner and 23 runners up are chosen. Special recognition is given to the winners at all levels.
     At the presentation of the prize for the first contest in 1989, International President Austin Jennings said, “As an organization, Lions Clubs International believes that the pursuit of peace must include a recognition of the common dignity of all people in our world society. Peace is generated by understanding, tolerance, friend- ship and assistance based on the belief that people, despite differences in racial, ethnic or cultural heritage, share a common humanity. It is that effort - to foster understanding among the peoples of the world - that led us to sponsor this first International Peace Poster Contest. After all, there is not a better place to begin teaching understanding than among our children. Every child who enters this contest becomes an artistic peace ambassador in his or her own special way."
