Four OLHS Artists Are “All-State”

Four artists from Olentangy Liberty High School (OLHS) have been selected to display their work at the 2014 Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.  The exhibition is the most competitive and prestigious art show in Ohio. The art was chosen from 12,000 regional entries statewide. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition.  OLHS had 12 peices go to the state judging round, and four students were selected for the final show of top 30 works. Being chosen for this show is the high school art world’s equivalent to being named all-state in sports.

 

OOMS students attend Ohio Model United Nations

About 30 students from Olentangy Orange Middle School (OOMS) attended the Ohio Model United Nations (OMUN), held at the downtown Hyatt Regency March 16-18.  The OMUN is a three day global education experience that helps students learn how the United Nations operates. Students become delegates of a selected nation in order to write, present and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world. Students began at the start of the school year to research a country and decide the biggest problem facing that country.  Together they write a resolution explaining the problem and potential solution, then present thier findings at the summit. This year there were about 1,000 students at the middle school conference which is sponsored by the Ohio Leadership Institute.
