Winona girl among international peace contest finalists – just like her sister last year


A 13-year-old Winona girl has been selected as a finalist in an international peace-poster contest from a field of 400,000 – just one year after her sister was chosen for the same honor in a field of 350,000 entrants, the Winona Daily News reports.

Last year, it was Hannah Going who was among the 23 students from around the world whose entry was chosen to be among the select few merit award winners in the Lions International Peace Poster contest, the Daily News reports.

This year her sister, Grace Going, received the same honor, the newspaper reports. She used colored pencils to create her illustration, which depicts white doves rising from the pages of a book, in front of the planet Earth. Also part of the image are colorful ribbons symbolizing uniting the world in peace, she said.

Here's her poster:
