Peace Poster Contest Update

The Holliston Lions Club sent information to the community about a month ago regarding the Youth Peace Poster Contest – You can read our original post here.

We want to make sure each student who is planning to submit a poster has the information they need about judging and submission of their posters so we have set up a convenient online form for you to fill out with the name of the student, their date of birth, parent’s name and an email address. Please fill out this form so we can provide you with the relevant information.

Reminder of 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.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at or at
