The North Campus of Miami Dade College has joined hands with Lions Clubs International’s District 35N to present the District’s Annual Peace Poster Competition. On Tuesday, November 23, 2010, “local district” students ages 11 through 13 years of age from some 35 different clubs, will showcase their posters before an official jury of judges from the North Campus Arts and Philosophy Department.

North Campus President, Dr. Jose A. Vicente stated, “North Campus’ place as an important convener of the arts is handsomely complemented by the opportunity to support Lions Clubs International in its worthy endeavor to develop young minds through the visual and creative arts.”

Twenty-four international finalists are selected each year, representing the work of more than 350,000 young participants worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibitions around the world. Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.

Lions District 35N Governor Alec Hernandez stated, “Our District 35N is a proud participant of this global competition that encourages young people worldwide to reflect on their personal life experiences and culture, and to artistically express their visions of peace through a variety of media including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint”.

With 1722 members in a total of 74 Clubs, District 35N is bordered on the north by Sebastian, Florida, on the south by Key West, on the west by Seabring, and on the east by Freeport, Bahamas. Lions Club International is the largest volunteer organization in the world with 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members.
