Bay Lane and Lake Denoon Students Win Local Competition in Lions International Peace Poster/Essay Contest

March 28, 2014

The Muskego Lions Club honored this year's Peace Poster & Essay contest winners at their March 24 meeting. This year's theme "Our World, Our Future" inspired over 60 students from Lake Denoon and Bay Lane Middle Schools in their first quarter art classes to express their vision of peace.

Judging of the posters/essays occurred in the fall of 2013. All student artwork was judged anonymously by its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of this year's theme "Our World, Our Future."

At Bay Lane Middle School, Alexis Schneider won 1st place, and Molly Bohmann won 2nd place. At Lake Denoon Middle School, Cheyenne Johnson won 1st place and Katie Auble won 2nd place. both Alexis and Cheyenne's posters advanced to the district level, and were judged by another panel of judges. At the district level, Alexis won 3rd place, and Cheyenne won 4th place.

Each first place winner was requested to submit a quote on peace as part of their winning poster. Alexis notes that peace is "A rest between all wars and conflict, a calm and quiet stage of love and happiness." Cheyenne states "Peace is finding forgiveness and having tolerance, compassion and acceptance."

All of the judged student artwork was on display December, 2013 at the Muskego Public Library for everyone to enjoy. Special thanks to Penny Halle, Youth Services Librarian, and Pete Loeffel, Director of the Muskego Public Library for hosting the display.

Jenna Prock, a Bay Lane Middle School student, wrote about her vision of peace in the essay portion of this contest. The essay contest is open to visually impaired young adults that are 11,12 or 13 years old. Jenna won at the local level, at the district level, and then represented the state of Wisconsin as her essay travelled to Lions Club International for judging. Jenna's essay was one of eighteen essays submitted world-wide. Even though Jenna did not win at the International level, her essay was well-received.

The Muskego Lions Club would also like to thank Sheri Motz, Bay Lane Middle School Art Teacher, Denny Severin, Lake Denoon Middle School Art Teacher, as well as the administration at each school and the Muskego-Norway School District for their partnership over the past 5 years with this amazing endeavor!
