The Lions Club Peace Poster program is an annual worldwide competition, and this year there were approximately 600,000 entries from around the globe.  In our area, there are 36 Lions Clubs with 1300 members, all of whom promoted this competition to their constituencies.  

Once again this year, St. Anne’s art teacher Amy Sherman encouraged sixth graders to conceive and create a piece of art to submit.  Finalists were judged by area artist Sara Jones, a graduate of the Delaware College of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design.

We are so proud of St. Anne’s sixth grader Charlotte Bjorklund, who was named the winner of the District 22D Lions Club peace poster contest!  Below, Charlotte explains the meaning of her work of art:

"My poster is based on happiness. The heart shaped earth represents love and kindness. The world is without any crime, bullying, or racism. The hands represent diversity and the different people of the world. The rainbow in the background represents happiness. The sun shining down from the corner is approving it, saying “This is right, this is how it should be.”  

-Charlotte Bjorklund ‘21
