16 Clubs submitted 20 posters for judging. 2 poster had to be disqualified for various reasons. The winning poster, for the 2nd year in a row, came from the Rocky Mount Club. 2nd place went to the Cave Spring Club and 3rd went to the Moneta Club.


Thanks to all clubs that participated this year. I would like to see more clubs take part next year. It is an excellent program which the Middle school kids ( ages 11 thru 13 ) and the school art teachers truely enjoy. It is a great way for young teenager to have an opportunity to work with the Lions.
