Four poster winners advance

Four local schools have winners in the annual International Lions Peace Poster Contest.
They are Chelsea Mosley (Crossroads), Summer Jim (Mine Centre), Savannah Woods (St. Francis), and Hannah Taylor (Robert Moore).
These students were among more than 350,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 19th-annual contest.
Lions Clubs International is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.
The winning posters were selected by Pam Hawley, curator of the Fort Frances Museum, and Vi Plumridge, a well-known local artist, for their originality, artistic merit, and portrayal of the theme “Celebrate Peace.”
The judging took place Monday (Oct. 30).
The four winning posters now advance to face stiff competition through the district, multiple district, and international rounds of competition, if he/she is to be declared the international grand prize winner.
Our club is cheering for our local winner. We hope their vision ultimately will be shared with others around the world.
Copies of the winning posters will be on display at the Royal Canadian Legion during the annual Remembrance Day tea this Sunday (Nov. 5).
Also on display will be three honourable mentions from each school.
The Fort Frances Lions Club will recognize the four winners at a special awards night Nov. 14 at the Legion. The winners will receive a framed certificate and a cheque for $50.
They, their parents, and their teachers will attend, as well as all the Fort Frances Lions Club members.
