FOX MEADOW INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL WINNERS OF LIONS ART CONTEST

   Claire Case, a student at the Fox Meadow Intermediate School (FMIS), has been selected as the round one winner at her school of an international art competition sponsored by the Jonesboro University Heights Lions Club, AND the "Best in Show" winner of all three contests in Jonesboro.  The finalists were announced and presented certificates and prizes at a special assembly today at FMIS.  Around 100 student entries at the FMIS, all prepared by students of Art Instructor Laura Kessinger by the November 3rd deadline, were among more than 350,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 19th annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest for artists between the ages of 11 and 13 - this year's theme was "Celebrate Peace."  The students all drew posters depicting the contest theme, with the finalists judged by local artist Larry Vickers.  Lions Clubs International sponsors the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.  University Heights Lions Club President Ken Helman indicated that his club was sponsoring the annual contest in Jonesboro for the sixth year in a row in an effort to help promote the global Lions' mission of promoting peace and also to encourage young local artists.

   As the FMIC round-one winner, Claire received a $50 check from the Jonesboro University Heights Lions Club.  The top two other finalists at the school also received cash awards: the $25 second prize went to Sylvia Hardin, while the third place award of $15 went to Kirby Banks. Honorable Mention awards went to Latisha Weatherall and Tyler Eudy.  Ms. Case's winning poster will advance to round two district competition, and if successful there will face three more rounds of competition, with the winner of the last round being declared the International Grand Prize winner.  The grand prize winner will be selected from 24 international finalists, and will receive a cash award of $2500, plus an all-expenses-paid trip for the winner and two family members to New York City for the awards ceremony next Spring at Lions Day at the United Nations headquarters.  As Merit Award winners, the remaining 23 finalists will each receive certificates and a cash award of $500, with all of the finalists' posters being displayed on the Lions International web site-- www.lionsclubs.org
