Young Georgia Author's competition
The Young Georgia Author's competition is a statewide contest for Georgia's best writers.  It  awards scholarship prizes for students from each grade level.  There is no prompt and no required genre.  The only requirements are that you actually wrote what you submit and that your entry is under 1900 words.

Entries may include:
  • Short Stories
  • Poetry
  • Essays/Literary Criticism/Analysis
  • Journalism
  • Academic/Research Reports
  • Personal Narratives
  • Any Other Original Student Writing  

All entries should be emailed to with the subject line "YGA" or "Young Georgia Authors."  Within your email, be sure to include your grade level.  The deadline for entries is February 23.

So far, we have only received four entries, and all of those are from juniors.  That means that there is a good chance of winning if you submit. Happy writing, Wildcats!
