Lions International Essay Contest Deadline is November 15

As Knights of the Blind, Lions everywhere serve children with visual impairments to improve their health and quality of life. The Lions International Essay Contest is open to visually impaired students ages 11 to 13 – providing an opportunity for them to express their feelings of peace. The theme for the 2012-2013 contest is “Imagine Peace.” One grand prize winner will receive an award of US$5,000.

Watch the video above to hear thoughts of young people as they reflect upon the 2011-2012 essay contest theme, “Children Know Peace.”

The postmark deadline for a club to send one winning essay to the district governor is November 15, 2012. See the essay contest guidelines and complete rules for more information.

In addition to the essay contest, other Lions youth programs include the Peace Poster Contest, Lions Quest and the Youth Camp and Exchange Program. Educate, inspire and engage the youth in your community!
