MEDINA – Two Medina school students are winners in the Medina Lions Club’s 2022 Peace Poster Contest.

This week, Jim Hancock, a Lions Club member, and Lions’ president Jim Punch presented awards to winner Jordan Olsen and runner-up Eyrn Meacham.

Thirty-two entries were received and judged by the Lions Club Board of Directors. Jordan’s poster was then sent to the district competition, where he finished second.

The contest is open to 11- to 13-year old students at Medina Junior-Senior High School and is coordinated by art teacher Jen Scott.

This is the 10th year for the Peace Poster Contest, and is one of Medina Lions Club’s community service projects.
