Marina Olevsky – 2003 High School Grand Prize Winner

Language Arts, specifically, a poetic art form, was the genre Marina Olevsky chose for delivery of her project. “The Igniting Creative Energy Challenge has certainly proven to play a pivotal role in my life as both an individual and an environmentally-aware part of a community.”

Marina is a beautiful writer and employs the use of sensory imagery to ignite readers’ interest. Her poem, Reclaim the Verdant Sheen is thought provoking and inspiring, and her essay was written creatively while showing maturity in concern for the fragility of our environment.
