Cami Lee, Rose Edmondson and Zach Olguin placed first, second and third respectively. Tyler Turner received an honorable mention.
Concord Lions Club representatives awarded students during a May 24 ceremony. Their posters were recognized for artistic merit, originality and portrayal of the theme, “Children Know Peace.”
More than 200 countries annually sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local school and youth groups. More than 325,000 students ages 11-13 use a variety of artistic mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to create unique artistic expression of world peace inspired by life experiences and cultures.
Posters advance through local, district, state and international judging levels. At the international level, judges select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.
