So proud to see a Malaysian doing great in the International circuit! Our 13 year old has kicked all 81 arses from around the world. Oops mind the language, it’s a peace poster contest after all, heheheh.
KUALA LUMPUR: A 13-year-old boy from Bidor, Perak, created history by winning the grand prize in the 20th annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
Ming Yang Soong emerged victorious after competing with more than 350,000 children, aged between 11 and 13, from 81 countries.
“I felt very sad to see so much fighting and so many people dying in the world. I hope my drawing will help to promote peace.
“All nations must work together to keep this world peaceful,” he said in a statement yesterday.
His grand prize poster was chosen for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of this year’s contest theme “Peace Around the World”.
