The contest is open to all students who will be age 11, 12 or 13 years old on November 15, 2019. Students must live in Holliston but need not attend school in Holliston. The contest is open to every child who meets the age guidelines including those students who are home-schooled.

Peace Poster Contest Rules

Each entry must follow the theme of the contest which is Journey of Peace. Students who are visually impaired and meet the age guidelines are encouraged to submit an essay in place of a poster. Students are only eligible to submit one entry. The entry parameters are:

Essay: Each essay must be no longer than 500 words. The essay contest is designed for students who are visually impaired. You may be required to submit documentation should your essay move forward.

Poster Size: Because of the size limitations imposed by Lions Clubs International, the Holliston Lions Club has purchased the correct size poster. Poster board will be available free of charge from now until October 31, 2019 at Fiske’s General Store. Students will be asked to leave their name and a contact phone number or email address.

Deadline for Submission: Essays and posters will be collected at the Holliston Senior Center on Saturday, November 2, 2019 between 1pm and 2pm.

Additional Information: Students who are submitting essays should be aware all essays must be typed on white paper, double spaced and use only black ink.   No prior entries or published works can be accepted.

While students may create posters using pencil, charcoal, marker or any other medium, if the material is able to smear you should use a sealant. We cannot accept entries which are laminated or three dimensional.  For posters, there should be no wording or lettering on the front of the poster. Names and telephone numbers should be placed on the back of the poster or essay in the bottom right hand corner.

Additional Information

Winners of the Holliston Lions Peace Poster/Essay contest will be selected on Saturday, November 2. Judging will take place at the Holliston Senior Center. Members of the community are invited to attend; light refreshments will be available. We will also be asking community members to consider assist with judging the contest. If you plan to attend, or would consider being a judge, you can sign up at hollistonlions.org.

Prizes

The winning poster/essay will be awarded a $50 prize from the Holliston Lions Club. That poster or essay will be eligible to move forward to District 33K Lions judging where one winner will be selected from the 48 Lions Clubs in the area. Should your poster be selected to move onto the state level, it will be one of five entries. Those entries are enrolled in Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest on December 15. The winner of that contest will be notified on February 1, 2020 and will be eligible to win $5,000 plus a trip to New York with their parents.

Parents or students who have any additional questions about the Lions Clubs International Peace Poster Contest should reach out to the Peace Poster Committee at peaceposter@hollistonmalions.org or Holliston Lions President at president@hollistonmalions.org

Holliston Lions Club: Fighting Preventable Blindness

In fact, at that time in 1925, Lions in Massachusetts were part of District 33, which contained seven clubs in Massachusetts, one in Maine. Massachusetts Lions had no specific eye programs, they typically handled issues with blindness within their own Clubs, or District. That changed in 1950.

Holliston Lions to End Year with a Bang!

The Holliston Lions Club’s year will come to an end on June 30th. This is perfect timing since their annual carnival is going to be in town from June 26 to June 29th with the carnival ending as it has for many years with a firework display on June 29th at 9:30pm. More details can be found on the Holliston Lions website. Thanks for Ongoing Support The Holliston Lions Club is fortunate to have annual sponsors at different levels who provide us with funding that is desperately needed to continue serving our community. In addition to our annual sponsors, we would also like to thank those who have helped us on single events like the Winning o’ the Green raffle. Businesses from across Holliston help make this event one of the largest fundraising events of the year. The proceeds from this event help us provide scholarships, support the Holliston Pantry Shelf and more. Without your donations of money, services and items, we could not continue to do the work we do.

Holliston Lions - Service With a Mission

The Holliston Lions Club performs many service projects and fundraising events. Annual events like our $10,000 raffle go to support many important programs not only in Holliston but across Massachusetts and internationally.
