The Lions of Arizona Council Chair Barbara Dailey of the on behalf of the 108 Lions Clubs and 2,700 Lions of Arizona, is proud to announce the conclusion of this year’s Annual Peace Poster Contest. For over 30 years Lions Clubs around the world have sponsored children to create their visions of Peace through the creation of Peace Posters. This year’s theme is Peace Through Service, and it was open to children ages 11-13 sponsored by their local Lions Club. The posters are judged locally and winners are chosen and submitted to be judged globally where the winner will receive a $5,000 prize and a trip to the global award ceremony. This year’s winner for Arizona is 12 year old Edouard Preciado of Wilson K-8 school in the Amphi Unified School District in Oro Valley. Edouard was sponsored by the Catalina Oro Valley Lions Club where the program has been managed by Lion Dawn Hawk who said, “I have been doing this for eleven years and this is the first time we have won. After having taught school for 50 years I am a firm believer that fine arts are a necessity for our schools. It makes us so proud to have sponsored Edouard this year.” For more information on the Lions of Arizona go to our website at https://lionsarizona.org.
