Raymond Banke, grade 10, recently received a distinguished honorable mention in the Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Student Contest. The contest, which received more than 2,100 submissions from nearly 70 countries, recognizes and rewards the work of middle and high school students who bring awareness to issues impacting the health of the world’s oceans.
Banke’s piece, titled “Protection from the Sun?” was submitted to the art category. As a distinguished honorable mention winner, Banke was awarded a prize of $250.
In addition, upper school science teacher Kate Schafer, who acted as Banke’s sponsor during the contest, received a sponsor recognition award. Congratulations!
