Dare to Dream Peace Poster Contest Winner

Newcastle  and  Ballynahinch  Lions  clubs  combined  again this  year to sponsor  a  superb  peace  poster competition in   5  local  post  primary  schools.

The  judges  Robin McCaren Newcastle Lions and Alison Heron Head of Art at Belfast High School had  a  busy time  looking  at the  creative  talents  of  over 100  entries.

This was a  fantastic  response  once  again from our  local  schools.

The  winning  entry  was submitted by Assumption Grammar  school pupil Saranya  Nagineni  who had  a  beautiful  reflective  and  appropriate quote  for  us  all submitted with the poster.

"  Your  dreams  of  today  can  be  reality  tomorrow  if  we  work  together"

Saranya ‘s poster was forwarded to the all Ireland competition where it achieved first place and it has now been  selected  as  Irelands  entry  to the  International  Peace  Poster Contest. It was posted to the USA on 1st December 2023 and the local Lions wish Saranya every good luck in this very prestigious competition.

This  is  great news for Saranya,  her  parents, her  teacher , and  the school.

The clubs  visited  the  schools and pupils who had submitted entries and  presented certificates and  prizes at assemblies. They  were  also  able  to  talk  about  Lions  work  at  local, District  and international  level.
