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 2013-14 Peace Poster Contest is "Our World, Our Future." 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.

2014 Tournament of Roses Parade Lions Clubs International Float

2014 Float "Lions Building Matteo's Dream"
is Under Construction

The Lions Float, Inc. committee has been arduously and meticulously working on the 2014 Float idea that best depicts the Tournament of Roses Theme "Dreams Come True." Following a meeting with Past International Director Bill Crawford and endorsed ID Candidate Larry Dicus, Matteo's Dream (a park built by Lions in Concord, CA) would be a great choice of depicting what Lions do. That information was relayed to Phoenix Decorating (our float builder) and they had a couple of renderings designed with that information mixed in with hundreds of sketches the Executive Committee reviewed. Four sketches were selected for the entire committee to review and vote on at the March 3rd committee meeting. The above sketch best depicting Matteo's Dream was selected and given the title of "Lions Built Matteo's Dream." 45 Lions Clubs and 3,000 volunteers built the park in 8 days.
