Marietta, GA - Eleven Marietta City Schools (MCS) students are among the recently named system winners of the 2011-2012 Young Georgia Authors Competition. The Georgia Department of Education selects from among system winners for the Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) district competition that includes entries from other area school systems. RESA district winners advance to the statewide competition.

"Congratulations to all the students competing in this year's writing contest. Their entries were well-written, organized, and enjoyable to read," said Dr. Debra McCracken, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.

MCS 2011-2012 Young Georgia Authors Winners


The annual Young Georgia Authors (YGA) Writing Competition is a statewide contest that inspires Georgia students of all ages to create original works from any genre, whether in the form of a poem, a newspaper article, a short story, a research project, or any other kind of writing the student enjoys. The student's writing is initially judged within his or her own school system or district, and all first place grade level winners are then submitted to the Georgia Department of Education. The first place system writings are grouped according to grade level and RESA district. Finally, a panel of judges from across Georgia meets to determine the first place grade level winners for each RESA district as well as the first place grade level winners for the state.
