Rylie McCracken, center, was the winner of the McAlester Lions Clubs Peace Poster Contest. She is congratulated by Lions President Neal Wood, left and Melissa Hoover, of Parker Intermediate Center. Thirty entries qualified for local judging in November and McCracken’s entry went on to district competition. The theme was “Our World, Our Future,” and one international winner will be announced Feb. 1. This was the first time in decades the local club has participated in the international contest, distributing 250 sheets of poster paper to local students ages 11-13, with the assistance of Briggs Printing.
