Peace Poster Contest – Peace Through Service

Spread the love

CONTEST JUDGING

Posters are evaluated on three criteria at each level of judging: originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme, “Peace Through Service.”

Work with your sponsoring Lions club to determine how and when the judging will be held. Only one poster can be selected, per contest sponsored, to advance to the next level of judging. It is important that the poster selected to advance to the next level of judging meets all the requirements of the Contest Rules & Conditions.

Once the winning poster is selected from your school or youth group, your sponsoring Lions club will forward it on to the next levels of judging (postmark deadline is October 15).

The winner’s parent or legal guardian’s signature is required on a sticker held by the club.
