The 2020 edition of Gulliver Preparatory’s Reflections Literary & Arts Magazine has been released, and several Upper School journalism student projects won top accolades at the Florida Scholastic Press Association’s (FSPA) 2020 virtual spring conference. The theme of this year’s magazine “Rise” was inspired by COVID-19 and current events, with many Gulliver Prep students submitting pieces they wrote while experiencing quarantine and social distancing. The Gulliver Prep campus is located in Pinecrest.
In April, Gulliver journalism students participated in the FSPA virtual spring conference, bringing home top awards. Olivia Martin-Johnson ’22 earned first place for her literacy magazine spread titled ‘Alone’ while Cindy Vega ’21 took top honors for her photo story “Pandemic Perspectives,” and Lucas Figueroa ’23 won second place for his cooking demo video, “How to Make a Monte Cristo Sandwich.” The 2019 edition of The Raider yearbook was also honored with the “Sunshine Standout” award, placing it as the “Best of the Best” of yearbooks printed in 2019 in the state of Florida.
Reflections Literary & Arts Magazine offers a glimpse into students’ creativity. The interdisciplinary publication involves work from students in several academic and special areas including English and creative writing, art, journalism, and world languages.
