Sponsored by Petersfield Lions Club
TPS Year 8 student Jemma Green who won the Petersfield Lions sponsored Peace Poster Competition in 2019, also won the District 105D and subsequently the Multiple District MD105 National Competition. Jemma’s interpretation of the theme ‘Kindness Matters’ was widely praised by TPS staff and Lions Club representatives from around the country. Jemma attended the Houses of Parliament in Westminster Palace at the Lions International UN Day, to be presented with a Certificate, cheque & framed copy of her picture. She was accompanied by Petersfield Lion President Sandra Manktelow, Teacher Harriette and mother, Kate.
Well done Jemma! Over the past few years we have run a very successful Peace Poster Competition with TPS, along with an Art Display in Winton House.
For 2019, Petersfield Lions Club’s Peace Poster Competition, “Journey of Peace”, was won by TPS year 7 student Esme Ostersen. Esme’s quote on peace was :-
“The idea of peace is one thing, creating peace is another, but in the end it is worth striving for.”
The competition saw some very imaginative and creative entries, but the judges, Petersfield Lions and local artist Caroline Strong, felt Esme’s entry best represented the theme.
Petersfield Lions Club President Mary Putnam presented Esme with a Certificate, a Framed Copy of her picture and a £25 book token kindly donated by The Petersfield Bookshop.
There were also 3 Highly Commended pictures by Eleanor Dudman, Ella Brotherton and Poppy Cooksey.
The Competition is run every year by Lions Clubs International and this year’s theme was “Journey of Peace”. It’s a way of encouraging young people to think about world peace and their interpretation of this as a piece of artwork.
Esme’s picture subsequently came Second in the Lions District 105SC Competition.
