Chloe Retuya, an eight grader at St. Bridget School, is the 2021 annual Connecticut Lions Club Peace Poster Contest winner for her outstanding entry on “Peace.”
Her artwork was submitted to Lions International headquarters in Chicago for judging in the “international” version of the Peace Poster Contest against over 150,000 entries, worldwide, for the coveted “first place” award. Chloe’s entry was judged one of the top 23 entries overall and she was further awarded a merit award by Lions International along with a check for $500.
The Cheshire Lions Club Peace Poster Contest entries have consistently won “first prize” in the state contest among three districts for the past three years in a row. The Cheshire Lions Club is proud of Chloe’s achievements. The Peace Poster Contest is open to middle school students in both public and private schools in Cheshire annually.
