St. James Students Earn Top Honors in Poster Contest Students at St. James Cathedral School in Orlando earned top awards for Orange County students participating in a poster contest celebrating Law Day 2012. The objective of the contest was to ensure youth understand their rights and responsibilities under the law in order to become effective participants in civic life in the U.S. The theme for Law Day 2012 was “No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom.” Alessandra Fable, a seventh-grader, was the overall winner, for “Best in Show.” Her poster depicted a person whose eyes and mouth were taped shut. She was awarded a U.S. Savings Bond for her effort. St. James students swept the top three positions in grades 3-4 and grade 5-6. Bella Spence won the contest for grades 3-4, while Gavin Galy was second and Alayna Jolie Filimon was third. Nikki Fritz won the contest for grades 5-6, followed by Emily Lucas in second and Alexis Tamvakis in third. Taylor Mrozek earned third place for grades 7-8. For their efforts, the students were awarded ribbons during an Orange County Bar Association luncheon April 26 at The Ballroom at Church Street in downtown Orlando, and the winners received a gift card. Law Day 2012 is put on by the Orange County Bar Association, and the poster contest was open to all Orange County students in grades 3-12, at private and public schools.
