The Lynchburg Lions Club and Lions Clubs International sponsored their annual peace poster contest again this fall.

The Lynchburg club encourages middle school students to develop a special poster on a theme related to promoting world peace and kindness. This year’s theme was “We Are All Connected,” and a total of 83 students participated in the local contest.

The club wishes to thank Ms. Free for supervising the contest at the middle school.

Five winners were selected, and they were given special certificates and cash prizes by the Lynchburg club. All the students were given participant certificates and candy.

The top five winners this year, in order, were Hayley Crase, Tanner Roberts, Libby Watson, Lily Layne and Aubrey Roberts. All are sixth-grade students at Lynchburg-Clay Middle School.

Crase’s award-winning poster was submitted to the district finals for competition at that level. Each Lions Club is encouraged to submit an entry from their local school. There are nearly 60 Lions Clubs in District 13-OH6, and the Lynchburg club is proud to sponsor Crase in the district contest.
