Fulton Students Compete in OCAY League


Students from Fulton City School District competed in the last Oswego County Academic Youth League (OCAY) competition of the year, which centered on the theme of leaving a legacy and living a memorable life.
 
The event involved tasks such as creating and illustrating a children’s book, performing a silent drama and giving an inspirational speech. True teamwork was demonstrated as the students delegated the work based on their individual skill sets to divide and conquer.
 
Fulton students created and illustrated a children’s book entitled “The Young Tortoise,” a fable that demonstrated a clear theme involving living a memorable life.
 
The Fulton OCAY League members for this competition were: David Houck, Aryelle Barbagallo, Phil Summerville, David Tallents, Victor Runeare, Nick Riciputo, Mackenzie Bogart, Ben McKay, Gina Babcock, Erica Perwitz and Victoria Eckerd.
 
After the medals were distributed, the OCAY League teams took turns selecting through an assortment of items that will be placed in a time capsule box for next year’s teams to use.
 
OCAY League is coordinated through the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation’s (CiTi) gifted and talented program.
