International Lions Club, the largest worldwide charitable organization, sponsors a contest every year designed to foster world peace and understanding through the creative artwork of school children aged 11 to 13 years old. Winners are selected at the local, state, and national levels and then ultimately a grand winner at the international level. The theme of this year’s poster is Peace, Love and Understanding. Seeing children express hopefulness for peace through their artwork helps raise everyone’s spirit in today’s world shell-shocked by the atrocities of terrorists. Makayla Hollins won this year’s contest and was presented a check at a ceremony at Golden Corral on December 15.
