Youth's Vision of Peace
Peace seems to be something everyone is searching for these days and the Lions Clubs International is providing Burbank's preteens with an opportunity to express their vision of peace on earth in the 19th annual International Peace Poster Contest.
This year's theme is "Celebrate Peace," and youth are encouraged to express their views on what peace means to them. The contest was established by Lions Clubs International to promote the awareness of world peace internationally among youth. For the past 11 years, the Burbank Lions Club has sponsored the local middle schools and the Boys and Girls Club of Burbank for this competition.
Winners of the contest will be honored at an awards presentation attended by Burbank officials, students, teachers, Lions and parents at 4 p.m. Friday at the Burbank Central Library.
The winner of this competition has the opportunity to proceed to the next round of competition. Burbank Noon Lions meet at noon on the second and fourth Thursday of every month at the Burbank Holiday Inn, 150 E. Angeleno Ave.
For more information, call (818) 955-8018.
