Peace Poster

about-me

Committee Chair Bob Valcourt- Tiverton Lions Club


Each year Lions International hosts a Peace Poster contest, inviting young people from around the globe to express their vision of peace and international understanding through art.

We here in Rhode Island host a Peace Poster contest to decide who will be sent off to the International Level. If you are a school teacher for students aged 11-13, please think about contacting a local sponsoring Lions Club. The Club will purchase/supply the required kits to the class at no charge. Most clubs will give awards to the winner of the club competition, and if the student wins the District level, they will receive a prize also.

If you have any questions or would like to host a competition, please click here.
