Each year, Lions Clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions Club International Peace Poster contest in local schools for sixth graders. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express visions of peace. For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated. This year’s theme was “Our World, Our Future”. The posters were judged on originality, artistic merit, and expression of the theme.
This year’s winning posters can be viewed in the lobby of the Mattapoisett Post Office. Congratulations go out to first place winner, Cuylar Mathieu, second place Anneliese Schipper, third place Jillian Higgins, and honorable mentions to Grayson Lord, Elyse Pellegrino, and Erin Scott. A special thank you goes out to “No Kidding” for the donation of gift certificates.
