The Middletown Lions Club invites all children ages 11-13 from Middletown area middle schools, home schools, or youth organizations to enter the Lions District Peace Poster Contest. The theme for 2013-14 is "Our World, Our Future."
Participants can use a variety of materials, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint to express the theme. Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit, and expression of the theme.
Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international.
An awards ceremony for local winners will be held by the Middletown Lions Club at the club's new meeting place, 301 Travel Plaza, in November. The first place winner will receive $50 and a framed certificate. The second place artist will receive $25 and a framed certificate, and each participating school teacher/leader will receive a $25 gift certificate to an arts and crafts store.
All artwork must be submitted to the Middletown Lions Club by Nov. 1. For information on entering, call Carolyn Rifino, (302) 378-7202.
