Governor's Youth Art Exhibition
Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its forty-sixth year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio's 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education. Our purpose is to provide all budding young artists of the state with opportunities to advance their talent, whether that be through scholarships or simply experiencing the process of entering their work in a competition. The exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for the arts throughout Ohio and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our state.
"This year we were one of 15 regional drop off points in the state. On March 5th we had a series of 3 judges come in to view over 350 works from 14 schools and over 20 teachers from Warren Harding, Canfield, Boardman, Fitch, Niles, Salem, and others. The process was a first for us and went smooth thanks to the professionalism of other teachers who where coming in. We want to say a special thank you to the Downtown Cafe for their donation to help feed the judges, student helpers, and teachers who came to Hubbard to drop off their work. Our kids did a wonderful job and we surpassed our highest amount of regional winner in previous years with 20 students pieces being chosen by the jurors. We also want to thank Mr. Deluco's maintenance staff for their help setting up the cafeteria and being their to help us with every aspect of the show. This year's art show is already going to feature two national and four regional winner's at Scholastics Art and Writing Competition, the 20 winners from Governors Youth Art Exhibition, and whatever we can win at the Trumbull County Art Show. Please come out Tuesday, May 3rd for the show."- Joshua S MacMillan- HHS Art Teacher.
The process of selecting artworks for the state exhibition begins on a regional level. The state is divided into 15 regional locations, with high school students in each region invited to enter work in that regional judging. Each region has a designated Regional Director, who is responsible for choosing the judges for his or her region and arranging specifics of the event.
The state judging takes place in Columbus; however, the judges for this level of competition are chosen from all over the country and are generally professional artists, college level instructors, or both.
From the 11,500 regional entries from the 15 regions, approximately 2,500 are selected to enter the state judging. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition, with 25 of the 300 chosen to receive the Governor's Award of Excellence. Scholarships are offered to seniors by over 30 universities and colleges of art. The selection of students to be offered scholarships is left strictly up to those institutions who offer them. The Governor's Exhibition is merely a vehicle through which schools and students are brought together.
Ohio Report Cards
Written by Marianne Hallapy
The News of Hubbard
Another round of state report-cards for the 2014-2015 school years were recently released for all school districts. While the Tribune Chronicle initially published Hubbard’s scores erroneously due to a formatting error, its retraction disclosed the correct scores, revealing both good indicators and a few areas requiring improvement for the district.
Superintendent Raymond Soloman agreed that there are subgroups that need attention, however, overall he was happy to note, “We’re meeting the indicators; our students are able to read; and we’re graduating our students.”
Last year, Hubbard students in grades 3 through grades 11 were given the Ohio State Tests to assess their knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. Math and English language arts tests were developed by Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), which were new for the 2014-2015 school year. Science and social studies tests were created by American Institutes for Research (AIR).
Congratulations to our Bridge Building Teams who competed Tuesday, February 23rd at YSU. Robbie D., Kenny R. and Michael L. took 1st place overall for the Bridges Efficiency. They also won 1st place in the Strength category carrying 117 lbs! Allison P., Celeste W., and Brooke V. also made top 5 carrying 104 lbs! The students received a trophy and a $100.00 cash donation will be made to Hubbard Schools from the Mahoning Valley Miniature Bridge Building Competition.
Holocaust Display at HHS
Jesse McClain, Educational Specialist of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation brought guest speakers Ari Levy and Amit Briness to speak to Hubbard HS students about resistance and the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
The subject of the Display: Mr. William Vegh survived Auschwitz and a death march before being liberated by American troops at the age of 16 in 1945. He lost both parents and 6 siblings in the Holocaust. He was a featured guest speaker here at Hubbard High School in 2003. The display stays at area schools for two weeks and features local survivors. Mr. Vegh spent his entire adult life in Youngstown until his death in 2009. His interview was conducted by Stephen Spielberg as a part of the Shoah Project.
This display is only set up in a handful of schools, per year. We are extremely fortunate to be able to share this experience with our students here at HHS. The display is set up and ready to be watched and read.
El Museo del Mundo Espanol:
The Spanish 4 students in Mrs. Badurik's class decided to create a museum in the classroom for their senior project. They spent many hours creating impressive exhibits, writing Spanish research reports and making verbal presentations in Spanish. They enjoyed themselves while learning so much pertaining to Spanish sports, history, cuisine, music, language, and holidays/traditions. The lower level Spanish classes also took a tour of the museum and voted for their favorite exhibit. Each group did an outstanding job!
Four Hubbard High School football players participated in this years 'National Signing Day'. Pictured from left to right are: Dominic Pantone (Lake Erie College), George Hill (University of Pittsburgh), Cameron Ingram (Malone University), and Brandon Rios (Edinboro University). Congratualtions to all four players! To watch a video from Signing Day, please click HERE.
HHS Band and Honors World History Work Together
The Hubbard High School Freshman Band classes of Mr. Nestich and the Freshman Honors World History Students of Mr. Stoffer have been working on a cross curriculum assignment with music and history. They are examining music from the Great Depression and World War II eras in the United States and Europe. They spent two to three days researching in the high school library with assistance from Mrs. Phiel. The band students focused on mostly the musical side of the time periods and the history students mostly focused on the historical aspects of the music. Both groups studied composers and musicians comparing their backgrounds with specific songs and the historical framework they were dealing with at the time. Students had different thoughts on the assignment. Adria P. said, “At first I thought it was strange that band and history were working together but when I saw the project it was obvious it related to each other. Ben P. added, “I thought it was cool because we got to mix the two genres and made it a super project!” The students completed a typed report on their findings and look forward to more exciting assignments in the future.
Students of Mr. Josh MacMillan have continued an impressive streak for National qualifiers in the Scholastics Art and Writing Competition. This year a total of eight students submitting 10 pieces of work entered to represent Hubbard High School. This year we were able to qualify but with a twist, two students won Gold Keys and will have their artwork sent to New York City for national judging for only for the second time (Nick Adduci and Tessa McGarrity), We also had three students winning Regional Awards (Nick Adduci X2, Grace Slaina, and Mariyah Hill). Along with our key winners were three students receiving Honorable Mention. All of our kids will be recognized at a ceremony on January 16 at YSU's Ford Theater.
Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual arts and literary arts organizations across the country to bring the Awards to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 apply in 29 categories of art and writing. Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
Last year, students submitted 300,000 works of art and writing to the Awards; more than 68,000 were recognized at the regional level and celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. The top 2,000 works in the country earned National Medals and were celebrated at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall.
Honors English 12 are reading Shakespeare's Macbeth. Here are a couple pictures for the website from our reenactment in class.
Giving Art Back
For the third year now the staff at Fairhaven in Niles, OH have opened the doors for the members of the Hubbard Chapter of National Arts Honor Society. Every fall and spring season a group of students make their way to Fairhaven Schools to put on a four hour workshop with around 100 students per trip on what has become known as Art Day at Fairhaven. The projects that the students of Mr. MacMillan’s NAHS included a paper bag scarecrow, Thanksgiving tree, turkeys, coloring a picture of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and a bracelet out of beads. The 9 students paired up at their individual stations where they were in charge of their own individual craft.
The Fairhaven School Program is an educational option in the continuum of special education services and learning environments available to individuals with developmental disabilities in the state of Ohio. The Local Educational Agency (LEA) is responsible for child identification, multi-factored evaluation, and development and review of each child's Individual Education Plan (IEP). Any child placed at Fairhaven by the LEA must meet the eligibility criteria of the Ohio Rules for Education of Handicapped Children and the State Department of Developmental Disabilities. Along with the students in the workshops there are also a series of preschool aged children that participated in the art workshops.
“It is a great feeling as a teacher to be able to put our students in a situation where you get to see them teacher. The sincerity in how they worked with each student, the appreciation they seem to have for being there, and how well they represented everything we hope our kids are was the best part for me as their teacher. In four hours we were able to spend time with children as young as 4 to kids the same age as some of our high school students. I truly think you carry experiences like this with you for a long time and our students will always be a small part of this with them. It’s the gratifying feeling of being a teacher for a day. We are fortunate that our administration allows us to go out and give our students opportunities like this. We are in a great place as a district with the support of a community and how they support our art program as a whole. From Mrs. Marino’s Walk the Rock Project, Ms. Toth’s middle school lego contest, this year’s new paper mache unveiling by Mr. MacMillan and Mrs. Lockovich at parent teacher conferences, and especially our trips to Fairhaven.”- Josh MacMillan, HHS Art Teacher.
