Madison Lions Club Peace Poster Contests 2006 - 2014

Our Lions Club participates in the Peace Poster Contests held annually by the world-wide organization of Lions Clubs International.  In this we have found the generous cooperation of local middle schools and their fine arts teachers.  Hundreds of children have thus been able to express themselves on themes of "Peace"

2013/2014:  "OUR WORLD, OUR FUTURE"

Past Peace Poster Contests:

2010/2011:  "VISION OF PEACE"

Winners:  Choiwing Yeung, Catherine Peng, Alicia Imbergamo

2009/2010:  "THE POWER OF PEACE"

Winners:  Choiwing Yeung,

The yin-yang in the dove's beak and the many flags that form the continents on the world symbolize coexistence because everyone in the world should accept each other's differences and learn to live together peacefully.  I drew a heart in anther dove's beak because people should not hate each other.  Hate brings war and does not solve anything.  Instead, people should love each other because love brings peace.  The people holding the power cord symbolize both of these things as well as friendship and happiness.  I drew a plug connected to the world plugged into an electrical outlet on a peace sign to symbolize the "power of peace" lighting up the world.  And the people holding the peace signs riding on the three doves are helping to spread the "power of peace" to the world.    [Choiwing Yeung, Poison Middle School]
