NATOMA -- Each year, Lions Clubs around the world sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. The art contest is for students ages 11 to 13 and encourages their visions for peace.
Shayne Engling, a sixth-grader at Natoma Elementary student, won the Natoma competition with his design for the 2013 international theme: "Our World, Our Future." Alyvia Zeigler placed second.
Engling will advance to district competition. Each year, Corinne Masters encourages her fifth- and sixth-graders to participate.
The local club judged posters on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme. Winning posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple districts and international. The grand prize winner receives $5,000; 23 merit winners receive $500 each.
