The Future of Peace

It’s the 30th anniversary of our Peace Poster Contest! To celebrate, we redesigned our Peace Poster kits.  Invite young artists in your communities to submit a poster design that expresses our theme, “The Future of Peace.” The contest is a great way to connect with your community and encourage youth to express their vision of peace.

Children aged 11–13 are eligible to participate. All you need to do to unlock a child’s creativity is purchase a Peace Poster kit from club supplies. Purchase your Peace Poster kit today!
