Petrova Middle School student Chase Newman won this year’s local Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest sponsored by the Saranac Lake Lions Club.

An awards ceremony was held recently at the middle school to honor Newman’s achievements.

Newman then went on to compete at and win at the District 20W level.

His poster has now moved on and will be judged at the New York state level. Judging at the state level will take place in June.

The Saranac Lake Lions Club would like to wish Chase good luck and to thank Maria DeAngelo and the staff at Petrova Middle School for their continued support.
