UNESCO School for Peace

Sylvia Lozano from the Montessori Sierra Madre School in San Antonio, TX, made this button to "show off" when UNESCO awarded their school the title of "School for Peace" after the school's participation in a Book Fair in Monterrey, Mexico. At the Fair, the school showed how they promote peace activities in the classroom and explained how important it is to teach children the importance of peace in their lives. The school had a contest for students to draw how they think of peace. The winning entry, submitted by a second-grader, was incorporated into the button.
