Our goal is to end blindness not just in the 37 counties we serve today, but also nationally and globally. It’s an ambitious goal, but with technological and scientific advancements combined with education and access, it’s an achievable one.

Lions International Peace Poster Contest Kits: Lions International Peace Poster and Essay Contest: will be celebrating its 34th birthday with the 2021/2022 contest! It was founded in 1988 to extend the opportunity to young people to think about peace, creatively express what it means to them and share their vision with the world through the creation of a poster. Each year, a different theme is assigned to the contest. This year’s theme is “We Are All Connected.” We are celebrating things that keep us connected-to each other, to our communities, and all together around the world. Over 600, 000 children from 75 countries participate in the contest, annually. Lions Clubs sponsor the contest which is open to children ages 11-13 in local schools or organized, sponsored youth groups, such as Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs, Church Youth Groups, etc. The contest is a wonderful opportunity for Lions to work with their community to promote peace, tolerance and international understanding. Posters are judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme. It also provides Lions with a vehicle for obtaining positive publicity for their clubs. In addition, Lions International offers a Lions International Peace Essay Contest for visually-impaired students. Information about the Lions International Peace Poster Contest and Essay Contest is available on the LCI website.
