Lion’s Club name local Peace Poster contest winners
In Nov. 28 Issue
Russell County News

Local Lion’s Club Peace Poster Contest winners were honored at a Jamestown Lions Club meeting last Thursday at the Jamestown Café.

Jamme Guthrie, eighth grade student at Russell County Middle School, placed first locally and in the Lake Region.

Guthrie’s entry, representing the contest theme The Power of Peace, now moves up to state competition.

His poster is among more than 375,000 entries submitted worldwide in the 22nd annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest.

Lions Clubs International sponsors the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people.

“It’s obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them,” said Jamestown Lions Club president, Danny Woodruff.

“I’m so proud that we were able to provide them with the opportunity to share their vision.”

Jamme’s poster displayed the power of peace through many young people holding hands, each wearing a different nation’s flag with lightning bolts coming down from the sky fusing them all together.

“The dove in my poster stands for peace. The people united and lightning from the peace sign represent power,” said Jamme. “I thought the sunset would be a pretty background.”

Hailing from an artist family, Jamme was encouraged from a young age to pursue his artistic talent.

“He painted his first oil painting when he was 9 years old,” said Jamme’s mother, Angelique Guthrie. “He was not really into art though.”

She said Jamme has enjoyed Mrs. Judd’s art class. “She has inspired Jamme and taught him a creative path,” said Angelique Guthrie.

Still the straight A student had not expected to be chosen as a winner in the contest.

“I was very surprised to win,” said Jamme. “I saw the other posters in the contest and thought they were really good.”

In all, there were 12 entries submitted to the contest. All the posters had original ideas but the judges were looking for a poster that definitively showed the power behind peace.

“It was really hard to decide who had won,” said Beth LaFrance, Jamestown Lions Club member. “We had several wonderful entries.”

Coming in second place was Zane Wallace, a seventh grader at RCMS who illustrated the power of peace through bold purple color surrounding a peace sign filled with flags of many nations and a globe at the center.

Wallace has been drawing and creating art since he was a young boy.

 “Ever since I was little, I liked to scribble in books,” said Zane Wallace. “I just built on it from there.”

He said a dream and chain of events led to his beautiful design.

Eighth grade RCMS student, Annie He, took 3rd Place in the Peace Poster Contest.

“When I was little, I used to draw sunsets,” said Annie He. “I thought for the peace poster, I would draw a sunset with a peace sign as the sun.”

Her entry showed doves ascending from the peace sign sun amid a colorful sunset over green hills.

“We are really proud of the students,” said LaFrance.

“We’re very appreciative to the school system, RCMS art teacher Mrs. Judd, the parents, and our Lions club for supporting the event.”
