REF:       Invitation to participate
DATE:     August, 2013

    We would like to invite your 11-13 year old artists to participate in one of the world=s largest art contests this Fall, the 2013-2014 Lions International Peace Poster Contest, sponsored for the 26th year in a row by the largest service organization in the world.  Specifically, our club is sponsoring school and other organization contests designed to produce original posters on this year=s theme AOur World, Our Future,@ which will be judged at the local, district, state, and international levels.  Each entry must be the work of only one student.  Cash prizes will be awarded at each level, with the grand prize winner getting a free trip for him/her and family members to accept the award and $5000 at the United Nations in New York City next Spring.  There is also a companion essay contest with the same general rules and theme for visually-impaired students unable to compete in the art contest.

    Many Jonesboro area students have taken part in our annual competitions for over a decade now, in several separate school contests. The contest is freeB-we would love to sponsor another school, city, district, and state winner this year; perhaps one of your students.

    The posters can be in pencil, chalk, crayon, marker, paint--virtually anything--on unmatted, flexible poster board ranging from 13x20 to 20x24 inches, produced by students who will be between 11 and 13 years old on November 15th B i.e., with birthdays between November 16, 1999 and November 15, 2002.  Nothing is to be glued or attached to the poster, and no words, letters or numbers may appear on the front of the poster. [Thus all artist signatures or initials should be on the back.]   Judging will be based on originality, artistic merit, and expression of the themeBAOur World, Our Future.@ The completion deadline will be Friday, November 1st.  Our club will be providing monetary prizes (and publicity) for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each participating school or organization--one winner from each school gets forwarded to the next level of the contest.

    We hope your student artists will participate in this year=s contestB if you decide to take part this Fall,  please send call or send a message to me at my email address above, and we will get a packet of information and additional directions to you. 

    If you want to learn more about the contest (and perhaps send a free email Apostcard@ featuring one of the 24 international winning entries from last year), go to http://www.lionsclubs.org/EN/our-work/youth-programs/peace-poster-contest/index.php.  The winners of our clubs contests in previous years may also be seen on our club web site at http://www.universityheightslionsclub.com/youth.htm.
