Poster awards
The Rockwell Lions Club sponsored the 2007-08 Lions International Peace Poster Contest at Erwin and Corriher- Lipe middle schools. The local competition winners participants, their families and school staff were honored at the Rockwell Lions meeting on Jan. 15.
Contestants were asked to create a poster that visually communicated the contest theme of “Bringing Peace to the World, Through One Child at a time.”
Shae Elizabeth Rollins was a winner of the local competition from Erwin Middle School. Her entry revealed bright, beautiful, colors of the rainbow surrounding a hand using the peace symbol. Shae’s quote was, “I think of peace as bright and beautiful.” Julie Joslin, assistant principal, and Leslie Hudson-Tolles, art teacher, were Erwin’s contest chairpersons.
Savannah Phillips was a winner of local competition from Corriher-Lipe Middle School. Her entry was the peace symbol centered on the earth. People and the flags of the world were assembled around the earth. Savannah’s quote was, “I think of people holding hands, getting along, and stopping all the wars to bring peace to the world.”Jennifer Christy, seventh grade social studies teacher, was the contest chairperson for Corriher-Lipe Middle School. Christy is also a member of the China Grove Branch Lions Club.
Lion Stella Stirewalt, president of the Rockwell Lions Club, congratulated the students and presented a $50 savings bond, a certificate award, and a gift bag from the Rockwell Lions Club to Shae and Savannah at the meeting.
The Rockwell Lions Club also expressed appreciation to Madison Hall from Erwin and to Kaitlin Lane from Corriher-Lipe for their participation in the contest.
They were presented a certificate of appreciation and a gift bag from the Rockwell Lions Club at the meeting. All entries were exceptional.
