In this paper, we establish the existence of positive solutions for $2n^{text {th}}$ order Lidstone boundary value problems with $p$-Laplacian of the form
$$(-1)^n[phi_{p}(y^{(2n-2)}(t)-k^2y^{(2n-4)}(t))]''=f(t,y(t)), ~~t in [0, 1], $$
for $0leq i leq n-1,$ where $ngeq 2$ and $k>0$ is a constant, by applying Guo--Krasnosel'skii fixed point theorem.
