Zack Tarle, a seventh grader at Spring Garden Waldorf School, won The University of Akron annual Rubber Band Contest for Young Inventors. Tarle received $2,500 for first place in the Arts and Leisure Division for his board game Spyder – a marble game for all ages. He says, “The game combines rubber bands, marbles and a playing board in the shape of a square. Outlining the board is a wall of rubber bands. It has four holes in the corners and one in the center. Around each hole are two motes and around the game board are tons of small holes arranged geometrically where you can stick pegs.” This was the fifth year of the annual contest, which The Akron Global Polymer Academy says “is designed to encourage students in grades 5-8 to demonstrate their creativity and ingenuity by creating an invention that incorporates the use of rubber bands.” Once again, SGWS graduate, Isabella Sparhawk, makes the news. She has not only been granted a patent for her science project work this year; her project has also advanced to be judged at Intel ISEF, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. The Intel fair is this week, May 12 to 17, and offers cash awards ranging from $1,000 to $100,000. Good luck Isabella! Congratulations also go out to SGWS alumni, Timothy Fries, who has received the Second Year Distinguished Scholar award from Muskingum University, where he ranks in the top 5 percent in academics for his graduating class. Fries was also inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society this year. William de Cardenas, SGWS graduate and high school senior at Theodore Roosevelt High School, in Kent Ohio, has won best in state in the Verizon App Challenge for creating an app to test for stream pollution. Ariel McCleary will be performing in the Stow-Munroe Falls High School musical “Hello, Dolly!” where she will play the second female lead Irene Molloy. Also Ariel and her Recipe of Life band mate Shelby Denton also won the 2012 Stow-Munroe Falls High School talent show with their original song, “The Journey.” Isabella Sparhawk won 1st Place Grand Champion in the Northeast Ohio Science and Engineering Fair. The Mock Trial team SGWS grad, Matt Rossi, a senior at Hoban, advanced to the state competition in Columbus this year where Matt won the award of “Outstanding Advocate.” Congratulations to all our successful alumni!
