For the last 30 years, the Lions Clubs around the world have proudly sponsored 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. The theme of the 2017-2018 Peace Poster Contest is "The Future of Peace." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 as of November 15, were eligible to participate.
This year, the Selma Lions Club named Aileen Heredia, a 6th Grade student from Selma Middle School, as their 1st place winner of the 2017 Peace Poster Contest. Aileen’s poster has been sent to the district competition in Chicago to compete for the international competition.
