The Chewelah Valley Lions Club selected two winning poster from the 17 entries. The theme for this year’s contest was “A Celebration of Peace.”
The colorful posters from young artists Conrad Bowers, Jenkins Junior High School and Jasmin James, Mary Walker, will be forwarded to the next level of competition. Second place winner Lilyana Willyard is also from Springdale.
The two first place winners will each receive $30 in prize money and a large two topping pizza from West Side Pizza. All of the participants will receive a certificate and a “treat” from the Chewelah Valley Lions Club.
All of the submitted posters, some of which the artists were too old for the competition, will be on display for everyone to enjoy in NAPA’s windows.
Once again, the two winning posters will not be on display because they will be sent to the next level of competition.
The Lions Club has a special “thank you” to teachers Pam Hegel-Holt, Springdale, and Kia Lilly, Chewelah for encouraging student participation.
The display is evidence once again of the abundance of talent in our area.
