Peace Poster contest announces winners

Isabella Tolen, a student at North Lake Middle School, won the Lake Stevens Lions Club Peace Poster contest, and also went on to win the district-level Lions Club competition out of more than 30 club winners from Snohomish and King counties.

The Lake Stevens club fielded more than 100 entries. Virginia Abbott (North Lake) won second place; Ronan Hortillosa (Lake Stevens), third place; and Juliana Taylor (Lake Stevens), fourth place. Each winner received a certificate and monetary award.

An award ceremony for the local honorees was held Dec. 4.

Tolen’s art teacher is Jennifer Penn. A student from Penn’s class has won the district-level Peace Poster contest three of the past six years, a local organizer said.
