Two students receive writing awards

Two students from Aaron Cohn Middle School have received awards for their submissions in the Young Georgia authors writing competition: Sara Mac Green, third place winner in district 6 and Logan Sands, first place winner in the 7th district. The Muscogee County School District had over 600 submissions at the district level. Sara wrote "Say Goodbye to Your Life", a short story about a teenage vampire. Logan's short story, "Harlem's Finest", was about a girl growing up during the harlem Renaissance. His story has advanced to the state level of competition. The purpose of the 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.
