The Lynchburg Lions club and Lions Club International sponsored their annual Peace Poster Contest again this fall.
The Lynchburg club encourages middle school students to develop a special poster on a theme related to promoting world peace. A total of 91 students participated in the local contest.
The club said it wishes to thank Ms. Free for supervising the contest at the middle school.
Three winners were selected and they were given certificates and cash prizes. All participants were recognized. The top three winners and their families will be invited to a special dinner later this winter at the Lynchburg Lions Club Building to honor them.
The top three winners this year, in order of finish, are Landon West, McKenna Roades and Kalyn Rich. All three are sixth grade students at the Lynchburg-Clay Middle School. West’s award winning poster was submitted to the district finals for competition at that level.
Each Lions Club is encouraged to submit an entry from their local school. There are 64 Lions Clubs in District 13-OH6 and the Lynchburg club said it is proud sponsor West in the district contest.
