Looking for Young Leaders

The Akron Mayor's Youth Leadership Council (MYLC) is looking for new members for the upcoming school year.

Mayor Dan Horrigan states, "I am seeking motivated young people to represent their peers in conversations with me and my staff on important issues like violence, education, neighborhood development, and ways to attract and retain young people in our city.   Members will learn more about how city government works, how to qualify for a MYLC high school internship, and develop leadership skills that will set them up for success in college, career, and life."

Any student living in Akron who will be entering 9th through 12th grade for the 2019-2020 school year and maintaining at least a 2.0 GPA is invited to complete an application.


Looking for a Summer Job ?

Ohio Means Jobs of Summit County is now accepting applications for this year's Summer Youth Employment Program.

The program is designed for Summit County residents who will be between the ages of 14 and 17 as of June 1 and live in a low-income household.

The period of employment will begin on June 10 and end on August 2.   Student employees will work no more than fifteen hours a week.

Interested applicants must apply on-line and will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis.


Elementary Teacher of the Year

Barber teacher, Katie Lovell, has been selected as one of four elementary teachers of the year for the Akron Public School System.

Lovell is pictured below, at the right, along with Barber principal, Ranea Williams.   She will be recognized at the Teacher of the Year Banquet on May 9.


Mason Students Create
Courtroom Art

Thanks to fifteen student-artists at Mason, a new piece of art hangs in the courtroom of Summit County Probate Court Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer.

The students, guided by art teacher, Anne Lackney, created the 7-by-7-foot watercolor canvas of a map of the state of Ohio.

For more detail on the project, read the story
appearing in the Akron Beacon Journal.

Grades 6 - 12

Design Ohio's
New Voting Sticker

Ohio Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, has announced a design contest to create a new voting sticker for the state.   Any Ohio student in grades 6 through 12 is eligible to enter.   Deadline for entries is April 28.

Entries must be circular and submitted through the Ohio Secretary of State web site.   (And, hopefully, the new sticker will make more sense than the current one pictured above.)

Complete contest rules, guidelines, and entry forms are available here.


Thanks from Seiberling

Members of the Seiberling LEADS team show their appreciation to Phillips Chapel CME Church on Iroquois Ave. for their gifts of coats, gloves, and other clothing donated to the school.


Create Art
Using Computer Code

Creating art with computer code?   That will be the goal of this year's Code Hopper Challenge sponsored by the the College of Education at the University of Akron.

The event, open to girls 11-18 throughout northern Ohio, will take place Saturday, May 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Akron Art Museum downtown.

Teams will be comprised of two to three girls and will use computer code such as JavaScript, HTML, Scratch, PencilCode, or others to complete an art project that will be assigned at the beginning of the session.   Completed projects can be a graphic, animation, or any artistic format created using computer code.

Each team will be assisted by a coach, and teams will be classified according to level of experience:   beginner, intermediate, or experienced.

Registration is $10 per girl and includes a box lunch and t-shirt.

Here are complete details, pictures from last year's event, and an on-line registration form.
