A poster made by a 14-year-old boy from Beirut has been picked from more than 100,000 entries as the winner of an international peace poster contest. Mustapha Tawoukji received a $500 check and a plaque Monday at the United Nations in New York. The competition, organized by Lions Clubs International, was on the theme “Peace Will Help Us Grow” and drew entries from more than 49 countries. Mustapha’s winning poster depicts a white dove flying over a rose. The young student at the Makased School Alhorj for Boys was accompanied to New York by his mother and a sister. He received a standing ovation when he was introduced by Lions Club International President Austin P. Jennings, who said the organization’s first peace poster contest had been won by someone who had “never known peace during his lifetime.”
