Four Orono Intermediate School fourth-graders medaled in National Mythology Exam. It is the first time OIS has participated in the competition.
Eva Redmond and Henry Shafer earned silver medals, while Abby Henry and Brynja Lockman received bronze medals.
Also participating were Justin Barry, Madeline Dent, James Field, Billy Foster, Addie Furst, Henry Jackson, Ainsley Kaufman, Trey Landa, Ben Lewis, Stewart Royal, Adela Sjoholm, Miller Willams and Ava Wright.
The competition consisted of two parts: general information about mythology and a specialized section on the mythological figure Hercules. Students read and researched many books and websites related to mythology to prepare. The competition is sponsored by Excellence Through Classics, a standing committee of the American Classical League dedicated to promoting classics programs at the elementary and middle school levels.
