Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace, tolerance and international understanding. This year will be the 30th year of the Lions Peace Poster Contest. Millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest over the years. The theme of this year's contest is "The Future of Peace". Students, ages 11, 12, or 13 by Nov. 15, 2017 are eligible to participate. The contest encourages students to think about peace, creatively express what it means to them and to share their own unique visions with the world.

Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the local level, the poster submission deadline is Oct. 30. The Tehachapi Lions Club will be holding their contest on Nov. 2 at the Tehachapi SENIOR CENTER 6:30 p.m. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.
