Students and staff at St. Philip Neri School in Linthicum have the Orioles magic.

The school was the grand prize winner of the Orioles “Go Orange” challenge. The Orioles issued a challenge in September to all elementary, middle and high schools in the state of Maryland to “Go Orange” and demonstrate their support for the Orioles, according to the Orioles website.

Schools were encouraged to decorate their classrooms, gymnasium and other indoor spaces; adorn the outside of their school or athletic fields with an Orioles look; or to involve students in demonstrating their Orioles pride, including wearing orange or Orioles clothing.

Schools submitted a photo and a summary detailing their efforts and were judged on their overall creativity, school spirit and “best use of orange.” It was a tough competition with over 30 Maryland schools participating, according to information on the website. St. Philip Neri School sent a photo collage of their “Go Orange Week” and included details about the extensive process that included decorating every classroom door and hallway; cafeteria staff decorating the tables and serving an Orioles-themed lunch; and all of the staff and students wearing orange and black for an aerial shot of them forming a human “O” outside. Kate Daley, the school’s principal even named Buck Showalter their honorary principal.
