Lakeland Sister Cities International (LSCI), a chapter of Sister Cities International, was formed in 1990. The mission of LSCI is to develop relationships with people and cities of similar interests to Lakeland from around the world. This unique program encourages cultural and educational exchanges, business opportunities and increased tourism by encouraging direct personal and professional relationships at the grass roots level.
Harrison School for the Arts has been hosting this show for the past several years in partnership with Lakeland Sister Cities International. The first place winners in the local Young Artists and Young Authors competitions are entered in the national “Sister Cities” art and authors competitions.
