Katie’s poster went on to the next round and won the Connecticut Lions District 23C contest. Her poster is now entered in the State competition where she will compete with the other two Connecticut District winners. Peace Poster winners will be honored and presented their awards at the Connecticut Lions Mid-Winter Conference at the Radisson Hotel in Cromwell, CT. on Saturday February 4th.
Each year, Lions Clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. For 29 years, more than four million children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest. The theme of this year’s poster contest is “A Celebration of Peace”. The images represented in the artwork reflect the artist’s view of peace.
The winning Columbia posters will be on display at Saxton B. Little Library during the month of January. All H. W. Porter School posters will be available for viewing at the Columbia Beckish Senior Center during February.
The Columbia Lions would like to thank the H. W. Porter School Administration, Enrichment Teacher, Sandy Rijs, and especially Art Teacher, Katherine MacDonald, for her artistic guidance with the students. Their continuing efforts make this annual contest a success.
