The Carson City Host Lions Club announced that Samantha DeLallo has won the local competition in the Peace Poster Contest.
The contest is an international contest that encourages children ages 11 to 13 to creatively express what peace means to them. This year’s theme was “Dare to Dream.”
DeLallo will receive a $50 award and will move up to the Nevada district level for further competition. If she wins there, she’ll move up to the international competition. Her poster used the peace symbol surrounding children of the world. She entered the contest through the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada.
Athena Sandell from Carson City won second place and a $25 award. Sandell is a student at Eagle Valley Middle School. Her poster featured a young girl dreaming of becoming a ballerina. Delaney Feuling received an honorable mention and is also a student at Eagle Valley Middle School.
The international grand prize winner will receive a trip to an award ceremony where he/she will receive $5,000 and an award. Additional merit award winners will also be selected, and each will receive $500.
