Their entry was selected out of over 180 other submissions from 7 different countries, and they were awarded in front of over 40,000 spectators at Championships. The award celebrates a robust digital media experience for audiences in many different mediums (website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more) through an outstanding marketing strategy and online presence. You can check out their 2016 submission of the award right here! If you're interested in joining the team next year and working on these kinds of project and more, email Julia for more info at

This all-inclusive tour comes at a very affordable price, totaling $1,052.00. The only money you will need on the trip will be for souvenirs and food on the bus. GOOD NEWS: You can reserve your spot on this trip for only $150.00!   Registration and the $150 deposit is due by May 18.

·      Y-12 Federal Credit Union is now accepting applications for student volunteers to work at the Golden Gryphon Credit Union (located in the Commons) on Wednesdays and Fridays during Genius Hour for the 2016-2017 school year.  This is a great opportunity for students looking to earn work experience or volunteer hours, and student volunteers over the age of 16 are eligible to apply for a paid internship at a Y-12 branch. Come by and talk to current students involved with the credit union during lunch to learn more about it! Pick up an application from the folder on the door of Room 215.
