Congratulations to the second place team from YHS in the Thomas Cup Robotics Challenge! Teams of high school students from across the state of Maine competed in a week-long challenge to learn to code a virtual robot to create a specific image. Teams were rewarded for clean and efficient coding, as well as their attention to detail and use of strong coding design features. submissions highlighted collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and computational thinking skills!
Saturday, the Debate team brought home their third gold in a row and the fourth of the whole season bolstered by stunning performances from Mary Psyhogeos (1st in the Senate), Kate Siegel (2nd in the Senate), and Maddy Corson (1st in her House).
We are thrilled to welcome NYC-based actor & filmmaker, Alex Malcolm Mills '06 back to YHS as a panelist in our first "Clipper Connections" career series. At YHS, Mills played the lead in the Footloose musical and won spirit week improv-comedy challenge. #yhsalumni #clipperpride

Debate Update - Saturday at the "Digital Nutcracker" Debate Tournament, Yarmouth got silver in sweeps thanks to another slew of solid performances. Mary Psyhogeos and Kate Siegel were the MVPs this week, with a first place win in the House and a 3rd place in Senate respectively. Also placing were Joshua Leinwand and Tyler Lucca, who earned 2nd and 4th in their Houses respectively. Maddy Corson technically earned at least 5th and maybe even 4th in her House, but that was not recognized due to a judging error which will hopefully be remedied soon. Deserving of special accolades is Oscar O'Donnell, who became the first Yarmouth competitor to strike out beyond Congressional Debate since we rebooted the team three years ago. He tried his hand at Lincoln-Douglas and appears to have done quite respectably, especially given the obvious challenges. Congratulations All!
Congratulations to YHS students Parker Harnett and Zoe Siegal who were chosen as semifinalists out of the 99,403 applicants for the National Coca Cola Scholars Program in recognition for their outstanding leadership, academic achievements, and dedication to their community.
