Peace Poster Contest Rules

The contest's theme is "We Are All Connected."

The Barrington Lions Club Peace Poster Contest is open to students who attend schools in Barrington, RI.  Contact your art teacher for details.


Contest is open to students who will be 11, 12 or 13 years of age on November 15, 2021. 


Artwork 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.

Artwork should be done on a flexible material (paper, canvas, etc).  The Barrington Lions Club will mail the winning poster to the State level contest so it must be rolled for shipping in a mailing tube. Do not fold your artwork.


Only one entry per student per year, and each entry must be the work of only one student.


All artwork must be the individual student's original creation. Duplications are not accepted.


All art media are accepted (markers, paint, crayons, pencil, etc.) Note: Chalk, charcoal and pastel entries should be sealed with a fixative spray to prevent smearing. Do not laminate entries.


Three-dimensional entries will not be accepted. Nothing may be glued, stapled or attached to the artwork in any way.  Digital/computer generated art is not accepted.


The use of lettering or numbering on the front of the poster, in any language, is not allowed. All artist signatures or initials should be written on the back of the poster.

All entries (original artwork) must be received by the Barrington Lions Club by Friday, October 22.  Artwork will be returned.


Participants accept all responsibility for late, lost, misdirected or illegible entries. Entries become property of Lions Clubs International upon receipt. Peace Poster Contest images cannot be used without written permission from Lions Clubs International.


In consideration for the opportunity to enter the Peace Poster Contest, participants agree to allow Lions Clubs International to use their names and photographs for promotional and publicity purposes. In addition, the international grand prize winner, two family members (one being a parent or legal guardian) and the sponsoring club president or a club member (as designated by the sponsoring club president) are required to attend the award ceremony at Lions Day with the United Nations. An international grand-prize winner is not eligible to receive subsequent prizes in future Peace Poster contests sponsored by Lions Clubs International. By entering, participants agree to be bound by these rules and the decisions of the judges and Lions Clubs International.
