The Arts Office, Laois County Council hosts a reception and prize giving ceremony for the Lions International Peace Poster Competition in Áras an Chontae, Portlaoise, on Tuesday, November 8 at 4pm.
The contest encourages children, ages 11 - 13, to express what peace means to them. The 2016 theme is “Celebration of Peace.”
Students are invited to take part and their work is adjudicated by an independent professional artist. The annual poster competition allows students to share their image of peace with other. The competition winners will be announced and prizes will be presented by Portlaoise Lions President Marcus Breslin.
The posters will be on display to the public in Áras an Chontae for two weeks.
