The Brandon and Evansville Lions clubs teamed up this year to sponsor the annual Lions International Peace Poster contest for the Brandon-Evansville 6th grade class.

Students were asked to create a poster based on the 2012 theme, "Imagine Peace." Posters were judged based on the originality, expression of theme and artistic merit.

The two posters selected to go on to the Lions 5M4 District judging were created by Sierra Olson and Christine Roers. Honorable mentions were awarded to Megan Lauthen, Chandler Suchy, Emma Marie Nelson and Eli Anderson.

Each year, Lions clubs around the world sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.

For 25 years, more than 4 million children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.

Posters will be on display at Evansville School through November 2 and at Bremer Bank in Brandon November 5-9.
