Winning Peace Poster 2012-2013
Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. For 25 years, more than eight million children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.
The theme of the 2014 - 2015 Peace Poster Contest is "Peace, Love and Understanding" Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.
Lions Clubs International Youth Exchange Program
Open to all students between the ages of 15 ½ - 21.
Since 1961 Lions Clubs have been sending as many students as possible around the world to experience another culture in the hopes of bringing about peaceful relations and a better understanding of the rest of the world. Our thousands of ambassadors, who do not have to come from Lions members, are picked, not for their scholastic ability, but for their desire to learn about another culture.
We encourage all students from around the United States to participate in our largest escorted program to Japan. We also exchange for a 4-5 week summer program to countries in Europe and elsewhere around the world.
