Four seventh-graders from Davidson participated in the annual Lions Club Peace Poster Contest.

Students' posters were recognized for artistic merit, originality and portrayal of this year’s theme, “Children Know Peace.”

Each year, Lions Clubs in more than 200 countries sponsor the contest in local schools and youth groups. More than 325,000 students ages 11-13 use a variety of media, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to create unique artistic expressions of world peace inspired by their life experiences and cultures.
