First-level winners are Tnick Trivimol, Jordan Middle School; Cameron Sauve, Luther Burbank Middle School; and Sylvia Touris, Boys & Girls Club.
Students receiving awards were selected by personnel from their respective schools.
"Vision of Peace" was the theme for the contest. Students participated from Jordan and Luther Burbank middle schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank.
The peace poster contest was established by Lions Clubs International to promote the awareness of world peace internationally, among youth.
Burbank government officials, students, teachers, Lions and parents gathered for the awards presentation to honor the winners.
This is the 15th year the Burbank Noon Lions Club has sponsored the project. Winners of this competition have the opportunity to proceed to the next level. After all judging takes place around the world, there will be 23 merit winners (receiving $500) and one top winner, receiving $2,500 and a trip to the United Nations in New York City.
