International Peace Poster Contest

MD202 1st Place 2021-22 Uijina Lee Hawera St Joseph's School 202D*


For over three decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special art contest in schools and youth groups. Creating peace posters gives children everywhere the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity.


Lions have provided an important reminder to the world that, through service we can find and receive so much - joy, kindness, hope and PEACE.


The 2022 - 2023 Contest Theme

"Lead with Compassion"


While overcoming new challenges brought on by an unprecedented global pandemic, we're celebrating the things that keep us connected - to each other, to our communities, all together around the world.


This year, young people have the opportunity to envision, explore and visually express these connections.


Your local Lions Club will provide your school with pads of A2 size art paper to express your view on how service to others helps deliver peace.  They will provide a date for their local competition in your community and provide prizes and certificates for the selected winners. 


The rules are simple and are attached.  There is no cost to the children taking part and the Lions will make sure that you efforts are rewarded.
