Lions Clubs International sponsors the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere. The theme this year was "Vision of Peace"
Ullmann's poster went on to win at the District level. At a recent Ithaca Lions Club meeting Anna accepted her award from the District Governor and the Ithaca Lions. Her poster will be on display at the New York State Lions Convention in Rochester this April.
