Peace Poster Contest Rules

Each entry must follow the theme of the contest which is Peace Through Service. 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: Size limitations are imposed by Lions Clubs International. The current requirements are posters must be no smaller than 13 inches by 20 inches (33 centimeters by 50 centimeters) and no larger than 20 inches by 24 inches (50 centimeters by 60 centimeters). Do not mat or frame artwork

Deadline for Submission: Essays and posters will be collected at a time and date to be announced later. The submission deadline will be on/around November 1, 2020.  

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.


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, 2021 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
