Lions International Essay Contest “A Celebration of Peace” 2016-17
The Essay Contest is for visually impaired young people. Why not approach schools now and ask if there are any students who could take part in this competition?
This essay contest was created to offer an opportunity to visually impaired young people to express their feelings of peace. In this context visually impaired is more than simply needing glasses though an exact definition is hard to come by, a good guide would be the issue of limited vision being included in special educational needs provision. The theme of the 2016-17 Lions International Essay Contest is “A Celebration of Peace.” Students who are visually impaired and who are ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15th 2016 are eligible to participate.
Lions clubs around the world are encouraged to sponsor students in the Lions International Essay Contest. Work with your fellow Lions, local schools and area families to identify young people who are interested in participating and who could benefit from this program. One grand prize winner will receive an award and US$5,000.
Although some clubs may have schools in their area that specialise in visual impairment many of the potential entrants will be within main stream schools.
