EUANTES Wins Highest Award from Virginia High School League

Once again, Euantes wins the highest award Virginia High School League gives a magazine. Euantes adviser, Sharon Leigg, announced the award yesterday.  Here are some of the judge’s comments:

“Your writing in this issue is some of the best I have ever read in my 50 years of judging. The pathos, the anger, the hurt, the pain your writers have captured in such poetic language chills my soul to the bone—Kudos!!!”

“With each piece, I thought I had read the best, BUT it became more professional as I moved through the magazine.”
“Visually, your magazine is complete pleasure. You have shown clear and exceptional creativity that provides powerful complements to the theme [Doors] and written word.”

“An exceptional job, one of your very best. The joy of your publication is you have created one with classical traditions; it has built on itself.  There is always outstanding art and photography, professional writing, classical design. The reader knows what to expect and has come to look for it.  It has the classical tradition of a National Geographic, a New Yorker, or any commercial magazine—Kudos!!!”
