DATE:     July, 2014

    We would like to invite your 11-13 year old artists to participate in one of the worlds largest art contests this Fall, the 2014-15 Lions International Peace Poster Contest, sponsored for the 27th 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 years theme A Peace, Love, and Understanding,@ 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 local competitions for the past fourteen years, in several separate contests. The contest is free-we would love to sponsor another school or youth group, 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, 2000 and November 15, 2003.  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 theme. The completion deadline will be Monday, November 3rd.  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 or youth group contest gets forwarded to the next level of the international competition.

    We hope your student artists will participate in this years contest if you decide to take part this Fall, please send a message to me at my email address above or call, 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 international winning entries from last year), go to
