Nine students snag awards in prestigious Cleveland Clinic eXpressions competition
Officials of the Cleveland Clinic recently announced that nine NDCL students earned awards in the Clinic's prestigious eXpressions competition.
   
For only the second time in NDCL history, our students snagged honors in all three competition categories: art, language, and math. Of the nearly 1,700 entries from schools throughout the Clinic's entire market area, fewer than 7% earned the judges' recognition. This year only 76 artworks, 36 writing submissions, and five math projects earned awards.
 
"This year’s competition was incredibly tough," commented Ms. Christine DeNicola, the Clinic's manager of school based-programs.
   
eXpressions is an interdisciplinary program that utilizes art, language, and math to engage high school students in the world of scientific research. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students interpret, analyze, and communicate research conducted by Cleveland Clinic summer interns. Last year seniors Alexis Hammer and Michelle King won spots in the renowned summer internship program.
   
In addition to being exhibited in the eXpressions Art, Language, and Math eXhibition at the Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland, the award-winning entries will be featured in the program's print and online catalogs. The exhibition at the Global Center will open on February 15 with a formal dedication and reception. Student winners will receive gift cards and their teachers will be awarded educational grants from the Clinic.
