National Scholastic Medals
Posted on 03/15/2018
Congratulations to BSHS senior Devan Eickhoff and YBMS 8th grader Ava Hough for winning a 2018 National Scholastic Medal. Nearly 350,000 works of art and writing were submitted by students in grades 7–12 this year. Receiving a National Medal places students within the top 1% of all submissions!

Devan earned a gold medal with her short story "Fly," and Ava earned a silver medal with her poem "Toll:50mg." Both students join a short list of SMSD students to receive this honor, including BSHS sophomore Benjamin Cook, who placed nationally with a silver medal last year for his essay "The Beginning: Big Bang, Creationism…or Both?"
