Six Westlake High School Honors English students were selected for special recognition through the Cleveland Clinic eXpressions writing program.
Blue ribbons and $100 went to juniors Haley Lyle for “I’m Too Early” and Kailey Mau for “Geremy’s Travels.” Red ribbons and $75 went to juniors Krystina Horvath for “Trapped” and Natalija Tyler for “Temporalnova in the Doctor’s Waiting Room.” White ribbons and $50 went to juniors Thome Reusser for “Waiting Around” and Apshara Ravichandran for “Not Yet.”
WHS English teacher Mindy Clark also received a $100 educational grant.
The eXpressions language program utilizes written communication to engage high school students in the world of scientific research. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students produce literary interpretations of research conducted by Cleveland Clinic summer interns. The program gives participants a deeper, real-world understanding of language and science while promoting creativity, communication, critical thinking and teamwork. It also gives high school students and their teachers an opportunity to earn undergraduate and graduate credit, respectively, from Northeast Ohio universities.
About 1,000 art and language submissions were received in the contest this year. A panel of content specialists, including art educators, professional writers and editors, scientific researchers and mathematicians judged submissions on interpretation, presentation, creativity and initiative.
All award-winning submissions will be featured in an eXpressions booklet. All wining art and writing pieces are on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
