2020 MD60 CONVENTION PIN DESIGN COMPETITION

2020 MD60 CONVENTION PIN DESIGN RULES

Please read ALL the following information carefully before commencing the design of the pin to avoid being disqualified.

The Lions and Leos of Barbados will be hosting the 40th MD60 Convention in Bridgetown, Barbados May 13-17, 2019. The hosting of this convention also coincides with the Government of Barbados, 2020 Vision strategy.
We are hoping that our theme embraces vision and Helen Keller’s call to Lions to be the knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness. Therefore, the pin design should reflect creativity highlighting vision, sight, service and unity.
