Each winner received a certificate and a $50 bill.

Bailey’s, Seungmin’s, and Hailey’s posters were among more than 375,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 27th annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs sponsor the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people.

Winning posters were selected on the basis of originality, artistic merit, and portrayal of the contest theme, “Peace, Love, and Understanding.”

FHLC Peace Poster chairperson Lion Jeff Root said he was impressed by the expression and creativity exhibited in the three posters. “It is obvious that Bailey, Seungmin, and Hailey have strong ideas about what peace means to them. I’m pleased that the Fairfax Lions were able to provide these students with the opportunity to share their visions.”
