Essay Contest for Youth

Lions Clubs International (LCI) is sponsoring an international Essay Contest on Peace for blind and visually impaired students.

The deadline for submission of essays is November 15, 2014. Blind and visually impaired students between the ages of 11 to 13 can participate in this exciting competition, which is a rare and wonderful opportunity for young students to showcase their writing talent and personal vision about the contest theme “peace, love and understanding” on a worldwide stage. The winner will receive a monetary award of $5000 and the experience of sharing his or her essay at the next Lions International Convention which will be held in Hawaii in July, 2015.

Any interested student must be sponsored by a Lions club to participate and can not directly submit an application for consideration.  Here are the contest rules and application procedures.
