Peace Poster & Essay Contest

Lions International Peace Poster & Essay Contest | 2022 – 2023

The Lions International Peace Poster and Essay Contest is an international contest that encourages children, ages 11 to 13, to creatively express what peace means to them through drawing and writing. This contest allows students to share their unique interpretations of peace with others across the globe, so that we may all have greater tolerance and international understanding.

The theme of this year’s contest was “Lead with Compassion.”
