Lions International Essay Contest
Created to give an opportunity for visually impaired young people to express their feelings of peace, the International Essay Contest is a staple of Lions clubs around the world. Lions work with local schools and area families to identify young people who are interested in participating and who could benefit from this program. One grand prize winner will receive an award and US$5,000.
Students who are visually impaired and who are ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.
Each essay must be submitted with a completed entry form and be signed off by a supporting Lions' club. You can find your local Lions' club here.
Essays must be no longer than 500 words in length, submitted in English, type-written in black ink and double-spaced.
The club will forward your essay and the completed entry form to the District Youth Coordinator by 1 October.
