Cobb ELA announces the CCSD Writing Fair winners.
Writing is brave work, and Cobb ELA is proud to celebrate students as they grow in this great art form.
As the great painter Henri Matisse once said, “Creativity takes courage,” and, as anyone who has bared his or her soul on paper knows, writing requires risk and vulnerability. This year’s Writing Fair winners have demonstrated remarkable bravery in their writing entries with a range of ideas and descriptions. In particular, we would like to congratulate two schools with multiple winners this year: Garrett Middle School and Sprayberry High School. As well, we have two students who have been school-level winners for two years running: Kingshuk Ganguli won 2nd place last year in his kindergarten class, and this year, he placed 1st in his first-grade class at Murdock Elementary. Congratulations, Kingshuk, for showing such growth and initiative!
Our other repeat winner is Riley Moore at Palmer Middle School. Riley placed 1st in last year’s competition for her entry entitled “Banned.” This year, Riley again placed 1st in her school and went on to become the 8th grade winner for the whole state of Georgia!
The Cobb ELA department loves celebrating the art of writing, and we are so proud of all our Cobb student writers along with their amazing teachers and families.
