Students Invited to Design Apples for Lincolnshire Event
Stevenson will be participating in the Apples Around Town project in Lincolnshire this spring. The public art event will feature fiberglass apple structures decorated by local artists placed around the village. The project is being organized by the Lincolnshire Community Nursery School in honor of its 40th year of operation. SHS parent Amy Morrissey is the nursery school’s director.

The Stevenson Foundation provided a grant to cover the cost for SHS, and Director of Fine Arts Jon Grice is inviting all interested students to get involved. The Fine Arts Division will host a design competition for students to submit designs. One design will be chosen and the apple painted during weekends in March and April.

Informational meetings for students will be held at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. Thursday in Room 6008. All designs are due March 17 to Grice in the Fine Arts Office or by email. Click here for complete contest details.

The 4-foot by 4-foot apples will be on display around Lincolnshire from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The apples will be made of fiberglass with a coating very similar to that of an automobile. The apple created by SHS students will then live at a location in the school to be determined.

Wednesday’s Varsity Results

Boys Basketball

Connor Cashaw scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and Matt Johnson added 16 points for SHS, which will begin IHSA state tournament play next week. Stevenson took control of the game early, and employed a stifling defense that forced the Warhawks (21-5) into 15 turnovers and 43 percent shooting. The Pats, meanwhile, shot 64 percent from the floor. Brunson and Johnson each hit a trio of three-pointers. – Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald (stats), News-Sun| High School Cube video
