Every year the Reeder Lions Club sponsors the Peace Poster Contest.
Peace Poster Chairperson
Every year the Reeder Lions Club sponsors the Peace Poster Contest. The past few years we have been working with the Hettinger Elementary School grades five and six. Mrs. Pam Harper has been the teacher that has helped with this project and we are very grateful for her interest in the project.
She has been instrumental in promoting peace and it’s importance in our country. The students show great interest when I, Sharon Soehren, come to the school and introduce the topic for the year.
The topic for the Peace Poster this year was “Celebrating Peace.” The students did an awesome job depicting peace. We had balloons, birthday cakes, confetti, and many other things to express celebration.
There were 46 posters to pick from and the Reeder Lions Club chose the top three. The winners were given money prizes for their efforts.
The winners were: Emma Jorda (third place), Patrick Schultz (second place), and Olivia Defoe (first place).
Olivia’s poster was sent on to the State contest which was held in Rugby, N.D., on Oct. 28 and 29.
