Grade 6 International Lions Clubs Peace Poster Contest

Back in September the grade 6 art classes participated in the International Lions Clubs Peace Poster contest. For the last 31 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.

 All grade 6 students created a poster in response to this years theme "The Future of Peace".  Several teachers helped select the 4 top posters and those students were awarded gift certificates donated by the local Lions Club. All of the completed posters (150+) were displayed at the Abington Public Library during part of November and all of December.  With all of the violence we read about it was inspiring to see so many positive images displayed on the walls of the library.  Below are some photographs of the posters and the 4 winners.
