For over 25 years UNICEF have been running an international poster competition for all students aged 11 to 14, to express their vision of peace. The winner of the national competition will visit the Houses of Parliament to receive a prize of US $500; whilst the winner of the international competition will visit the United Nations building in New York to receive a prize of US $2,500. The theme for this year’s poster was “Imagine Peace”.
For the past six years, Cranleigh Lions have generously funded Year 8 students at Glebelands to enter the competition by providing materials for all students and prize money for the top three entries.
Judged by President Brian Walpole and Secretary Paul Withers, there were joint second prizes of £25 and a first prize of £50. The competition was so close and of such a high standard that, for the first time ever, the judges decided to enter all three entries to the south east final.
Mr Malcolm Turley, Head of Art would like to express his gratitude to Cranleigh Lions for their continued support to students at Glebelands School.
