Two Wando Legend yearbook students placed in the top 10 of two national contests at the National Scholastic Press Association fall conference in Philadelphia Saturday.
Senior Olivia Estoppey placed 5th in the Sports Feature Photography contest, and graduate Mary-Michael O'Hara received Honorable Mention in the Writer of the Year contest.
Estoppey and O'Hara are two of only seven students in Wando yearbook history to be named national finalists in NSPA contests. Estoppey currently serves as Photo Editor for Legend; O'Hara is a freshman at Wofford College double majoring in English and Theatre with a concentration on Film and Digital Media.
Estoppey submitted a single image (attached) for the photo contest while Mary-Michael submitted five of the pieces she wrote for the 2021 yearbook along with an essay about her work and experience.
