Randolph-Macon Academy’s National English Honor Society, National Science Honor Society, and Art Department teamed up for a mid-year contest in which participating students were required to create an artistic poster that represented the life cycle.
The winner of the top prize of $100 was Mingyang Chen ’16, with his artwork focused on the life cycle of a cherry tree. Yiting Xu ’17 and Liana Trupiano ’19 received the runners-up honors, with prizes of $50 each. Their pieces focused on the silkworm and the butterfly, respectively.
The submissions were required to be original work by an individual student and show a fresh approach to the idea of demonstrating the life cycle. Any coloring materials were allowed, but computer-generated images were not. This STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) initiative is just one example of the cross-curricular collaboration occurring at Randolph Macon Academy.
The posters will be on display at the Upper School Science Fair on February 10th.
