Olympics: Faster-Higher-Stronger Smarter    

    Feb. 22, Conway Springs High School will once again be participating in the annual Pratt Academic Olympics. This event gives students a chance to see how they stand up academically and artistically to other students from different schools.

At the Academic Olympics, students have the chance to participate in a variety of on-site contests as well as carry-in entries for creative writing, journalistic writing, photography, and art. English teacher Kristy Martin has been in charge of putting together schedules for the Academic Olympics.

“I like sending students because there is such a wide variety of categories,” Mrs. Martin said.

Several students from CSHS will also be attending the photo critique session to help them in their journalism and yearbook classes.

CSHS has participated in the contest for the past three years and have had successes before. Many students will be returning to compete in different categories this year.

“I think I’ll do pretty good,” junior Lucas Mies said. “General Science seems like a familiar topic.”

Along with veterans of the Academic Olympics, new faces from Conway Springs will be attending for the first time. Freshman Audrey Doffing will be competing in English I and Geometry.

“I’m excited to spend time with my friends, and I think I’ll do well,” freshman Audrey Doffing said.

The bus will pull out Monday at 7:30 a.m. sharp, and the students will return before 3 p.m. This year, with 51 students attending, CSHS will have two buses.

“These students were chosen because we, the teachers, believed they would do excellent and represent CSHS well,” Mrs. Martin said.
