CONWAY –The Conway Area Lions are pleased to announce that Carissa Bianchino, a sixth-grader at Conway Elementary, has not only won first place at her school, but her peace poster entry also won second place in state.

Each year Lions International initiates a peace poster contest with a new theme to encourage young people to think about peace, and tolerance, and to be able to creatively express what it means to them.

This year’s theme was, “We Are All Connected.” All entries that are submitted are evaluated on their originality, artistic merit, and expression of the theme.
