Burbank Noon Lions
“Children Know Peace” is the theme for the 2011 International Peace Poster contest sponsored by the Burbank Noon Lions club, and on November 16, the club recognized the winners in a ceremony held at the Burbank Central Library. This is the first level of competition.
The peace poster contest was established by Lions Clubs International to promote the awareness of world peace internationally among youth. Burbank City officials, students, teachers, Lions and parents gathered for the awards presentation to honor the winners from three Burbank Middle schools and the Boys & Girls Club who took part in this year’s contest. This is the 16th year the Burbank Noon Lions Club has sponsored the project in Burbank. Winners of this competition have the opportunity to proceed to the next level. After judges weigh in around the world, there will be 23 merit winners, each receiving $500, and one top winner receiving $2,500 and a trip to the United Nations in New York City.
