ROSWELL, Ga. — Centennial High School has announced that four students from the high school have been selected as winners of the Fulton County Young Georgia Authors Writing Competition.

The purpose of the YGA Writing K-12 Competition is to encourage students to develop enthusiasm for and expertise in their writing, provide a context to celebrate their writing successes, and recognize student achievement in arts and academics.

Each winner will move on to the state level competition. State level winners will be announced on May 12.

Unlike many writing competitions, the YGA does not provide a prompt to which students must respond, or provide any other boundaries to their genre choice or creativity beyond 1,900 words.

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

The four winners are:

• Lilly Nguyen in 9th for “Unsuccessful”

• Emma Elmassian in 10th for “Invisible”

• Maya Schechter in 11th for “Just a Seed”

• Camila Carrasco in 12th for “Oneiric Brokenness”

Each winner will move on to the state level competition. State level winners will be announced on May 12.
