Three other Ontario students had work selected for Cameo shows. Leah Gombosch and Abigail Judson’s artwork were selected to hang in the Governor’s Office, and Sierra Henry had another of her works selected to hang in the State Department of Education.

Congratulations to these16 outstanding Ontario Artists!

The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its forty-seventh year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio's 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education. Our purpose is to provide all budding young artists of the state with opportunities to advance their talent, whether that be through scholarships or simply experiencing the process of entering their work in a competition. The exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for the arts throughout Ohio and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our state.

From the 11,500 regional entries from the 15 regions, approximately 2,500 are selected to enter the state judging. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition, with 25 of the 300 chosen to receive the Governor's Award of Excellence.

Science Day at Ashland University

Four Ontario High students participated in the 57th annual Mohican District Science Day at Ashland University this weekend. The students made a poster board and presentation of their research for the Ohio Junior Academy of Science that they have been working on all year. Both projects involved Alzheimer's research and a search for a cure.

Busy Bees

These students are busy as a bee! The Ontario Science Club Beekeepers learned about and built Langstroth hive frames for their bee hives.

Miss Willeke's English 9 students are practicing for the ELA AIR test by peer editing each other's persuasive papers with color coding and labeling.
