“We Are All Connected” was the theme for this year’s International Peace Poster contest through the Lions Club. Art students at OMS partnered with the Martin Lions Club to participate in this contest. Each year, the contest focus is on peace and gives young artists the opportunity to express what peace means to them. This year the Lions are celebrating the things that keep people connected — to each other, to our communities, all together around the world.
This year’s winner is 7th grader Auden Bosch.
"Auden’s poster embodied this year's Lions Clubs International Peace Poster contest theme," says Martin Lions Club representative, Debbie Foster. "The judging committee chose by unanimous decision. Auden’s artist statement; 'All over the world WE are the peace that brings us together. Through our voices we are all connected.' "
Auden receives a $50 gift card and his work will move on to the next level of competition.
