The Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest is in its 27th Year. Entrants from schools sponsored by numerous clubs in our district gathered at our Mid-Year Conference on 11th October 2014 for judging the finalists in our District410A. The guest speaker prior to the finalist being announced was Mrs. Nelia Hardman, who is a creative Art Teacher at the Edgemead Primary School. Mrs Hardman gave us an enthralling insight into the importance of art in schools and how such initiatives as our peace poster contest create a space for entrants to express themselves in art.

The theme for this Lionistic year was – “Peace, Love and Understanding” 2014 – 2015. The judges Ald. Clive Justus and Mrs. Nelia Hardman adjudged the following students submissions as grand prize winners:-

1st Prize winner – Keagan Larkin – Kirstenhof Primary School – sponsored by the Tokai Lions Club.

2nd Prize winner – Rosie Bruce – Springfield Convent School – sponsored by the Newlands Lions Club.

3rd Prize winner – Megan Nel – Gordons bay Primary School – sponsored by the Gordons Bay Lions Club.

We are rooting for our finalist to go through all the local and international ranks and hopefully win the ultimate Lions International Peace Poster competition.

At the 25th Anniversary Lions Peace Poster Contest held on Saturday 26th October in Pinelands Mikaela Tuck’s entry was selected as the winner.

Thirteen year old Mikaela won R2000 for both herself and her school and her classmate Savana Best’s entry ,winning R500 for herself and the school, was placed third giving Springfield Convent every reason to be happy with the results.

Second place winner Darren Thompson, a Grade 7 learner from Parow North Primary won R1000 for Himself and another R1000 for his school. His entry was sponsored by the Merriman Lions Club of Goodwood whilst the Springfield Convent entries were sponsored by Newlands Lions club.

This year’s theme “Our World, Our Future” was widely interpreted by the young artists thus creating Imaginative visions of how things could turn out.

Since the annual Peace Poster Contest was introduced in 1988 millions of young people aged 11 to 13 years, from over 100 countries, have taken part. With a different peace theme every year the contest encourages learners, their art teachers, families and Lions to focus on the need for and meaning of peace in their lives.

The winning entry by 13 year old Mikaela Tuck of Springfield Convent will now go to the Lions national judging in November.

South Africa has had one international contest winner in 1999 and many merit award winners since then.
