Each year, Lions Clubs around the world sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster contest. This art contest for students ages 11-13 encourages young people to express their vision of peace.

The Maggie Valley Lions Club proudly sponsored the Peace Poster contest at Bethel Middle School. The 2013-2014 poster theme was "Our World, Our Future." Each poster was judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

First place was awarded to Taylor Crowe, second place to Ashley Duvall and third place to Haevan Rodriguez. All three students received cash awards.

Crowe's poster went on to win first place at the district level. District 31-A consists of 49 clubs. Her poster will now advance on to the state level competition.
