Local Posters Contest Winners Announced
The winners of the 2011-12 Lions International Peace Poster Contest have been announced. Cassie Caccia took the first step in the 2011-12 competition by winning the local contest sponsored by the Wyalusing Lioness Club.
Locally, second- and third-place winners were Marissa Kusmierz and Caitlinn Belcher, respectively.
Under the direction of art instructor Abby Adams, the students were to draw a picture that illustrated this year’s theme: Children Know Peace.
With regard to Cassie's poster, she stated, “I would like to see all kids coming together and helping each other, sharing and caring for each other. Even though we are different, we are also alike.” The posters were judged by local artists, Millie Hetzel and Kathy Kring.
The winners and their guests will be honored at the Lioness meeting on April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at American Legion Post 534. At that time, their posters will be displayed, and each winner wil explain their interpretation of the theme in relation to their poster.
