Reynolds chosen as state-level winnner

Posted

Savannah Reynolds, a senior at Swainsboro High School, was chosen as a state-level winner in the Young Georgia Authors Writing Competition. Savannah won with her piece entitled “Ice Dance.”

When asked to respond to this great news, Savannah responds, “Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed reading. Even before I actually learned how to read, I would “read” to my stuffed animals by just reciting the stories my parents had read to me from my favorite storybooks. However, as I grew older, my passion and love for reading matured into a love for writing as well. I began to write my own short stories and plays, and I realized just how much I enjoyed writing them in addition to reading them. I have continued this hobby by writing a collection of short stories, and one day I hope to write novels as well. I have always dreamed of being an author, and competitions like the Young Georgia Authors Writing Competition have encouraged me to get closer to this goal. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and I am elated to know that so many others like me can have the opportunity to express themselves through writing because of programs like this one.”

The Georgia Language Arts Supervisors Organization and the Georgia RESA Network with support from the Georgia Department of Education sponsor the Young Georgia Authors Writing Competition.
