Lions International Peace Poster Competiton

During the Summer Term all Archbishop Blanch Students in Years 7 and 8 were invited to submit entries for a global art competition run by ’Lions Peace Poster’. This art contest encourages young people worldwide to express their visions for peace and for more than 25 years, millions of young people from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest. Participants are allowed to use a variety of mediums including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint to express a new theme developed each year.

The theme for this year’s contest was “The Future of Peace” and as a school we submitted the work of Scarlett Smith 9L. Her outstanding poster was judged against other District entries from Cumbria, Lancashire and Merseyside and as a school we are both pleased and proud to announce that Scarlett’s entry won the District round of voting and Scarlett will have the opportunity to visit the Lion Poster’s District Convention on March 3rd to receive her Peace Poster Award.

As a result of Scarlett’s fantastic achievement of winning this district stage of the Lions Peace Poster Competition her work will now be forwarded onto the national stage of the competition which, if she is successful again, will enable Scarlett to receive a further award at the Palace of Westminster on UN Day.

We wish Scarlett every success at this next stage of voting!
