Kellie Krpan Wins Local Competion In Lions International Peace Poster Contest

Arnold, January 16, 2013 -- Kellie Krpan, a seventh grade student at Avery Middle School, has taken the first step to becoming an internationally recognized artist by winning a local Peace Poster competition sponsored by the Arnold Lions Club....


President Lion Ramona Green, Avery Middle School Student Kellie Krpan, Lion Gerry Sachs,
and Chair for the Peace Poster Contest Lion Barbara Guevara.


Krpan’s poster was among more than 350,000 entries submitted worldwide in the annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs International is sponsoring the program to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.

“Through the eyes of all children they are looking up imaging peace, there is an olive branch, the peace symbol and musical notes representing world peace,” the twelve-year-old from Avery said. The school Librarian Christine Greenberg organized and assisted the students with their posters. The poster winner was selected by three judges from the Arnold Lions: Lions Barbara Guevara, Jackie Gutierrez, and Denny Lapham for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme, “Imagine Peace.” The judging was held on November 14, 2012 at Avery Middle School.

Arnold Lions Club President Ramona Green said she was impressed by the expression and creativity of the students at Avery Middle School. “It is obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them. I’m so proud that we were able to provide them with the opportunity to share their visions. Krpan’s poster will advance through the district, multiple district and international levels of competition if she is to be declared the international grand prize winner,” Green said.

One international grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners will be selected. The grand prize includes a cash award of $2,500. The 23 merit award winners will each receive a certificate and a cash award of $500. “Our club is cheering for Kellie as her poster advances in the competition, and we hope that her vision will ultimately be shared with others around the world,” Lion Ramona Green said.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with nearly 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired and made a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world.
