Learner and artist Keagan Larkin age 13, grade 7 from Kirstenhof Primary School was the winner taking home the grand prize of R4,000.00. The sponsoring Club was Tokai Lions Club.

This is what the judges wrote about Keagan Larkin’s peace poster:-

This poster combines the three elements, Peace Love and Understanding, without one element overpowering the other.

The incorporation of all the flags into the peace symbol, on international symbol, shows insight. The artist also included the globe with a combination of endangered animals showing environmental consciousness and that people and animals are equally important in the world.

Different cultures and nationalities are drawn from various parts of the world showing an understanding and respect for people’s differences to form unity through peace.

Each iconic building represents different ideas through symbolism i.e. the statue of liberty “Hope and Peace” between nations. The Eiffel Tower – means “love”.

The trees and hearts show love and growth amongst nations.

The doves beautifully encapsulate the entirety of the poster. The music notes almost creating a melody in your ears when you look at it.

The dove represents love and peace in the world and therefore understanding. The artist showed an understanding of the topic and combined elements which show great thought, knowledge and insight.

CONGRATULATIONS Keagan Larkin!

International President Joe Preston has challenged all members to strengthen the pride by the ‘Ask1′ campaign, I’m asking club leaders to grow their clubs by having each member invite at least one person to join their club and finish the year with one more than we started with. – let’s work together to grow our clubs and meet our Centennial Service Goals

Join the Centennial Service Challenge!

There’s never been a better time to serve than now! For nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities and impacted millions of people around the world. To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are asking Lions to help reach our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by December 2017. Every club can play a part in reaching our goal, and your club can earn special Centennial recognition when you serve!

Engaging youth – organise projects that engage and mobilize youth while helping communities.

Share the vision – raise awareness about preventing vision loss or help those who live with blindness and visual impairment.

Relieve the hunger – organise projects that mobilize your club members to make a difference in your community, by helping those who don’t have enough to eat.

Protect the environment – forests provide a source of livelihood, protection from natural disasters and absorb carbon dioxide emissions that lead to global warming. Organize ‘hands on’ projects by planting trees, at creches, schools, old age facilities, parks and other public places.

Let’s work together to grow our clubs and meet our Centennial Service Goals.
