BAYLEE MCKENNA WINS LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL PEACE POSTER CONTEST
This is Hoxie’s first year to enter the Lions International Peace Poster Contest. The contest was sponsored by Hoxie Hot Rodders Lions Club. Middle school art students at the Hoxie Jr/Sr High School were able to participate in the contest. As an art project, the class had to follow the contest’s rules and guidelines to complete a poster that shows “originality, artistic merit, and expression of the theme.” This year’s theme was “Share Peace.” It is an international contest for students to show how they imagine peace with others. Board members from the Hot Rodders Lions Club voted on the posters, and Baylee McKenna was selected as the winner. Baylee quoted, “I think that peace is everyone getting along and loving one another and watching out for each other.” Baylee’s poster will be forwarded and judged at an international level, and the winner will be announced on or before February 1, 2016.
