CARROLLTON, GA – Three Carrollton High School students were recognized for their work last week when the Carrollton Creative Writers Guild announced the winners of its 2022 High School Creative Writing Awards. This annual competition features poetry and short stories by students in grades 9-12.
Freshman Addison Lloyd, who has been honored several times in recent years for her writing talents, was presented the guild’s Special Recognition Award for her short story, “Harvest Season.” Addison has been a region winner in the Young Georgia Authors competition and has been recognized as early as elementary school for her writing ability. She is a student of language arts teacher Jamie Tuggle.
Other CHS award winners honored at the March 3 recognition event, held in the Carrollton Center for the Arts, were sophomore Madelynn Cook, who won second place in poetry for “The Burning Woman.” She is a student of Noah Brewer, who teaches language arts. Another 10th grader, Caitlin Boone, a student in Lyndsey Oliver’s language arts class, was awarded a third place honor for her short story, “Her Blue Bracelet.”
“The luncheon was great and the students did an amazing job reading their works,” said Hunter Spurlock, CHS language arts teacher who sponsors the school’s literary magazine and coordinated the contest at the school level.
