2014 Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest

2014 Peace Poster Winner

1st Prize Winner Keagan Larkin from Kirstenhof Primary School flanked by our District Governor Moira Theron on the left and MDC Yolanda de Jager

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.

Lions Clubs International Centennial Service Challenge

centennial_logoOctober is Sight Awareness Month

Participate in October’s Global Service Action Campaign by Sharing the Vision.

As you look for potential sight service projects, find inspiration from clubs throughout the world. Via MyLCI, clubs have reported projects like pre-school vision screenings, arranging talks on low vision, providing a visually impaired child with an iPad to help with schoolwork, organizing a fishing tournament for blind members of the community, and printing and placing large print menus in local restaurants. Sharing the Vision projects reported through MyLCI will count toward the Centennial Service Challenge.

How will your club help us serve 100 million people by 2017?

Every club is encouraged to get involved in a sight project, particularly during October. However sight projects can be done throughout the year. Remember to report your project on MyLCI. A good idea is to partner with another Lions Club near you to share the costs:
