5 WHS students recognized in eXpressions program
Westlake High School junior Fiona Bihn, an International Baccalaureate Diploma student, earned a Red Ribbon in the Cleveland Clinic eXpressions Language Program this year for her poem, “No One Noticed Me.”
WHS junior Lexie Floyd and senior Lili Busic earned Blue Ribbons, sophomore Macy Sinreich earned a Red Ribbon, and senior Henyah Dardir earned a White Ribbon in the Cleveland Clinic Art eXpressions Program.
The eXpressions program is an interdisciplinary program that engages high school students in the world of scientific research. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students produce creative interpretations of research conducted by Cleveland Clinic science interns.
Westlake students competed against about 1,400 art, language and math projects from 53 schools. Blue Ribbon winners receive a $100 gift card, Red Ribbon winners receive $75 and White Ribbon winners receive $50.
Award-winning projects will be featured in an eXpressions catalogue and on the Cleveland Clinic eXpressions website, and will be displayed in the 2019 eXpressions Art, Language and Math eXhibition at the Great Lakes Science Center.
