The Frances Kratz Award is given to the boldest and most “out-of-the-ordinary” look, and the Princess Diana Award (which was first given at last year’s Junior Ring) is designated to one who emulates the grace and sophistication of the late princess.

The Achona Staff Commemorates the Best Dressed at the Annual Junior Ring Ceremony

February 25, 2021

On Wednesday, February 21, at 1:30 p.m. the annual Junior Ring ceremony took place — although slightly later and different than in previous years. In non-covid times, Junior Ring would usually take place in mid-January, yet the pandemic derailed the event and left the administration questioning how to conduct the event in the safest way possible.

High School Assistant Principal Erin Krukar said, “We knew the ceremony would happen in some capacity. We just had to determine what would be the safest situation for all involved, and Junior Ring was moved to later in the year to try and avoid any COVID-19 cases following the Christmas holiday. We wanted to give all the students and families the best chance to attend.”

However, despite Junior Ring taking place on the soccer field, rather than the Brady Center, and there being a smaller audience (each junior was allowed up to four guests, but the rest of the student body was not in attendance as per-usual), Achona’s tradition of acknowledging some of the best outfits and shoes prevails — in addition to adding a new category titled “Best Mask.” The following are the winners of each category, as well as five honorable mentions.
