This week at Crestwood, we celebrated multiple awards and achievements from our many talented students. Congratulations to all!
Georgia Gardner won an award of merit for playwriting from the National Theatre School Drama Festival.
Armin Selzner earned the Silver Duke of Edinburgh award. He committed an average of an hour a week for an entire year to earn his Ski Instructor Certificate, as well as volunteering as a swim coach for young children while competing and practicing for a swim team.
The following students achieved a score of distinction on the Canadian Open Mathematics Competition:
Awards were given to students who wrote the junior American Mathematics Competition (AMC). Participants included Beatrice Park, Betty Liu, Karina Filipiuk, Koby Seeligsohn, Sara Farahi Fard, Thomas Mueller, and Tony Qu. Our third place writer at Crestwood was Simran Anand. Second place was tied between Steven Li and Jack Wu. Finally, our first place writer was Jason Tang.
Ellenoor Shameli won the Best Delegate Award in her historical crisis committee at the University of Toronto Model United Nations conference.
Every year, Crestwood students are encouraged to submit their creative writing, poetry and artistic works to the Royal Canadian Legion’s Remembrance Day contest. This contest allows students to use their creative abilities to honour and commemorate the sacrifice made by members of Canada’s armed forces in military conflicts throughout our nation’s history. This year, many students were recognized by our local Legion branch for their creative and artistic works, and earned special commendation (and a cash prize) for their creations.
