Calliope: A Crown Award Finalist!

Congratulations to Calliope 2023! | A Crown Award Finalist

Cheers to Mr. Petkus & the 2023 Editors

Here Ye, Here Ye! Cheers to Calliope!

Congratulations to Calliope, our Upper School English-language literary/arts magazine, for receiving a Crown award for last spring’s issue from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association! Congratulations to our Calliope 2023 student writers and artists, Calliope club members, student editors’ Sabrina Lu ’23, Lexi Trokhan ’23, & Arsh Vohra ’23, and advisor Mr. Steve Petkus. The 2023 editors and Mr. Petkus will attend the awards presentation in the spring at Columbia University, where we’ll find out whether our Crown is Gold or Silver.

Featured here is the Calliope 2023 front cover with original artwork entitled “Jungle” by Sally Kim ‘23.

This is the sixth time in our school’s history to receive this award. Previous “Crowns” were awarded in 1982, 1993, 2011, 2014, and 2016! The award is a huge honor; it represents recognition on a national level, with only a few dozen scholastic and collegiate magazines honored with Crowns out of over a thousand entries. 

You can still pick up a copy of the now 2023 award-winning issue of Calliope on campus in the Library. Congratulations again!
