On March 9 and 10, our junior and senior high students competed in the annual Bible, academic, and fine arts competition sponsored by the Buckeye Christian School Organization (BCSO).
Over 500 students from Christian schools all over Ohio met in Cleveland for the two-day event. A number of individual students as well as groups received superior ratings and several placed in their respective categories.
First place winners included Cheyenne Williams in posed photography; Lane Hufford in landscape photography; Larissa Berggren in hand sewing – dolls; Lilly Russi in non-categorical crafts; and the senior high quartet comprised of Elizabeth Garren, Samuel Sheeter, Aaron Turner, and Hannah Turner.
Several students placed second: Macie Riley in algebra/geometry test; Emily Barker in pencil drawing (junior high); Hannah Turner in pencil drawing (senior high); and the tone chime choir.
Those receiving third place awards were Hannah Turner in ink drawing and in water color; Cheyenne Williams in landscape photography; and Katelynn Crichton and Lilly Russi (junior high duet).
One of our eighth grade students, Lilly Russi, had her artwork selected to be used on the Hike for Hospice’s T-shirt. The Hike for Hospice is a long-standing annual event in Fayette County that brings together over 500 community members. Each participant will receive a T-shirt with Lilly’s artwork on it. This year’s event is scheduled for April 30. Way to go, Lilly!
