Cameron Harbridge, of Iola, won the District Lions Peace Poster Contest.
Her entry, sponsored by the Iola Lioness Club, was selected based on originality, artistic merit and portrayal of this year’s theme “Share Peace.”
The daughter of Mike and Jeannine Harbridge is a sixth grader at Iola-Scandinavia Elementary School.
Lions District 27-B2 Peace Poster Chair Joseph Leisgang, of Ashwaubenon, made the announcement to Cameron in front of her classmates during lunch hour. He was joined by her parents and fellow Lions and Lioness members.
“I was shocked to find out I was the district winner,” Cameron said. “It is an honor to receive this award.”
Harbridge’s poster will now advance to multiple-district and possible international competition. One international grand prize and 23 merit award winners will be selected.
The grand prize includes $5,000 cash and a trip to the award ceremony. Each merit award winner receives $500 cash.
“To see this poster get recognized at the district level makes us proud,” said Iola Lioness Club President Alice Peterson. “The Iola Lioness Club wishes her luck at the state level.”
Lions International sponsors the annual Peace Poster Contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.
