ENGLEWOOD — The Northmont Lions Club has announced the winners of this year’s Peace Poster contest. This year’s theme was “Share Peace.”
The contest was created in 1988 to give young people the opportunity to creatively express their feelings for world peace and to share their visions with the world.
At the district level, one poster is chosen to go to the State contest. Northmont’s overall winner is McKinna Bailey, a sixth grade student at Englewood Elementary.
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.
