The year-old from Golden Gate High School placed his hands on his face and squinted his eyes to hold back tears. The people seated around his banquet table had come to the same conclusion, and some of them quietly congratulated him.
It was his Oscars moment. High school students earned bronze, silver and gold medals in humanities, performing arts, science and visual arts.
The local gold medal winners, including Burgos, who won medals for drama and singing, will go on to the national competition this July in Cincinnati. The winners were buoyant as they ate celebratory cake and congratulated each other.
The chance to perform before a national audience validates all the hard work, said Burgos, who said he plans to study music and theater at Florida Gulf Coast University before following his dreams elsewhere. Other gold medal winners were Kesline Senesca, for vocals; Jeffrey Saintil, for poetry performance; Stephanie Latortue, for engineering; and Jacksen Pierre, for drawing.
Other silver medal winners were Jeffrey Saintil, for poetry writing; Laurie Paul, for poetry performance; Fridson Janvier, for drawing; and Giovanni Principe, for photography. Bronze medals also went to Jenia Alexis, for poetry writing; Kesline Senesca, for singing; Jhonnan Desinor, for poetry performance; and Tomas Coliqueo, for painting.

Latoitue said the idea was fueled by her interest in science and her willingness to help people.
Although Latoitue calls it a work in progress, she knows everything successful starts with an idea. Latoitue is going into her sophomore year at Golden Gate High School. It could take a few years until her final model is complete.Juneteenth Art & Essay Contest.
