CANTON – The area Lions Club recently held their Lions International Peace Poster Contest and three eighth-grade students from Canton/Galva Middle School earned awards and prizes for the artwork.

The Lions Clubs around the globe have been sponsoring this very special art contest for over three decades and get them involved with schools and youth groups.

By creating these peace posters, the Lions Clubs are giving children everywhere the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through their art and creativity.

Carley Schmidt earned a first-place medal along with a cash prize of $25 for her artwork that had the peace motto of ‘Our world may be diverse, but that doesn’t stop us from working together as one’. Carley’s winning poster will now enter the district competition.

Earning a second-place medal plus a $15 cash prize was Kinsey Dawes while Akele Chapman earned third place and a $10 prize.

Awards were presented by contest chairperson Richard Riemer and Canton/Galva art teacher Rick Anderson. Picture is courtesy of Jennifer Fitzpatrick.
