SL Lions name Peace Poster winners

Halle Becker and Avis Elias, sixth graders from Glencoe-Silver Lake Lakeside Elementary, have won local Peace Poster competitions sponsored by the Silver Lake Lions Club. Placing second were Brooke Christianson and Grace Lipke. The club sponsored two winners.
Becker’s and Elias’ posters are among more than 600,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 30th annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest. This year’s theme was “The Future of Peace.” Their posters will now advance to round-two competition, where their entries will compete against entries from other local Peace Poster contests.
Lions Club International is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.
