Lion Rad Eicke of the Snyder Lions Club was the winner of the Texas Lions Environmental Photo Contest. Lion Eicke’s photo took the Best of Show ribbon and he received a 2017 Lions Club International calendar including photos from the 2016 international competition. His photo represented local District 2-T2 after winning the district contest held January 14th in Lubbock.
The contest was held during the Texas Lions Council of Governors’ meeting in Kerrville February 3rd. Entries were submitted from multiple Texas districts and were judged by popular vote of attendees from across the state. The results appear on the Texas Lions Facebook page.
Lion Eicke’s photo will represent Texas in the 2017 Lions International Environmental Photo Contest to be held in July at the international convention in Chicago as Lions celebrate 100 years of service.
“We are proud that Lion Eicke’s photo will represent Texas in the international competition and we appreciate his volunteer work with the Snyder Lions Club,” said Texas Lions Council Chairman Ernesto “TJ” Tijerina.
The Lions Environmental Photo Contest provides a way for Lions to portray, through an original photo, their pride and commitment to improving, protecting and preserving their environment. Every Lion from a club in good standing can enter a photograph of his or her immediate surroundings into the local Lions Environmental Photo Contest.
