Banks County School System Celebrates Young Georgia Author Winners

The purpose of the Young Georgia Authors (YGA) writing competition is to encourage students to develop an enthusiasm for and expertise in their writing, provide a context to celebrate their writing successes, and recognize student achievement in the arts and academics.

This prestigious competition has engaged Georgia students for more than two decades. It 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.

The Young Georgia Author competition is held each year at Banks County Schools.

Assistant Superintendent Joy Edwards expressed immense pride in Jay and Eden's accomplishments. "We are so proud of these students, and wish them congratulations and also to the teachers who have poured into them," she shared.

Krause and Bless will also be recognized for their accomplishment at a future Board of Education meeting.
