Falmouth Lions Annual Peace Poster Contest

Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service organization, is made up of more than 1.35 million men and women in 208 countries and geographical locations throughout the world.  Lions created the Peace Poster Contest to foster a spirit of peace and international understanding in young people worldwide.

Winners named are one of 23 merit award winners out of 400,000 entries drawn by children ages 11 to 13 from 62 countries.  Winning posters are selected for originality, artistic merit and portrayal of each year's chosen theme.

  Luisa Simpson, from Falmouth Middle School, 3rd place winner for Maine District 41-Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest 2021-2022!

Annual Speak Out Competition

Each year, the Falmouth Lions host a local Speak Out competition, where the goal is to provide an opportunity for high school students to think about important issues facing them & their community. 

Each speaker prepares a 5 minute speech and is then asked one question each by two questioners. 

Speeches are scored by three judges based on:

  • Content
  • Presentation
  • Adhering to time limits

Selected winners are then sent to compete in the district and State wide Speak Out competition. 


Project Recycle 

The Falmouth Lions Club collects usable eyeglasses, sunglasses, reading glasses, frames, hearing aids and cell phones. The glasses, frames and lenses are sent to Project Recycle, a program developed by the Lions Clubs of Maine, which supplies eyeglasses to local providers for use with needy individuals and sends used eyeglasses to developing nations where they are fitted to those who need them. The processing center at the Massabesic Lions Club Regional Medical Center building on Route 202 in Waterboro is where they are cleaned, reshaped, fitted with new nose pads and earpieces before they are packaged according to size. The hearing aids are given to a local audiologist, who reconditions them for people who qualify and the cell phones, stripped of any information are programmed to make 911 calls are given to shelter that deal with battered women and children.
