Congratulations to our local school grade level winners: 6th grade - Benjamin Parker, 7th grade - Caleb Bible, and 8th grade - Angelina Martinez.
Writings shall be entered into the state-level competition by winning the tiered levels: (a) local school, (b) district, (c) RESA, and then (d) state. School systems may submit ONE winning entry per grade level (K-12) to the RESA-level competition. RESA-level winners will advance to the state-level competition.
The purpose of the Young Georgia Authors (YGA) writing competition is to encourage students to develop enthusiasm for and expertise in their writing, to provide a context to celebrate their writing successes, and to recognize student achievement in arts and academics. This prestigious competition has been engaging Georgia students for more than two decades and is open to any student currently enrolled in Georgia public schools, grades K -12. The competition is sponsored by the Georgia Language Arts Supervisors (GLAS) and the Georgia RESA Network with support from the Georgia Department of Education.
