Aspen High School students Quinn Ramberg, Gaia Murphy and Emma Ellis recently earned awards from the Scholastic Art & Writing Award competition. Ellis earned the Gold Key honor for her printmaking piece titled “Jellyfish.” Ramberg’s ceramics work, “Circus Collar,” earned a Silver Key, as did Murphy’s photography entitled “Inhale.” Their works will be on exhibit at the History Colorado Center February 15-March 29, with an awards ceremony March 9.
Siblings Sophie and Eli Genshaft were among 20 Aspen Middle School students in the all school spelling bee, with the two of them going head to head. They both spelled all of the words correctly, and they exhausted the word list, so they advanced to a spell-off, in which any word in the English dictionary or various other languages could be given. Sophie took the top honor for the second straight year and she heads to the Colorado State Spelling Bee on March 16. Courtesy photo
