McIntosh student wins writing award

Twenty of Georgia’s most artistically talented high school juniors and seniors have been awarded merit scholarships to study at the Savannah College of Art and Design, the most comprehensive art and design university in the world, as winners of the Georgia High School Drawing and Writing competitions.

One of those students was Peachtree City’s Calyn Wright, a McIntosh student who won the Gold Award ($3,000) in the 2009 Georgia High School Writing Competition.The scholarship recipients were honored at an awards ceremony Saturday, Feb. 6, at SCAD Savannah.

The top 50 entries of outstanding student drawing work are currently on public display in a juried exhibition through Feb. 15 at SCAD’s Alexander Hall, 668 Indian St.

Selected writing submissions will be published in the first Georgia High School Writing Competition anthology.
“The Georgia High School Drawing and Writing competitions were created to honor talented students and the educators who skillfully guide them toward success,” said Danielle Debien, assistant director of recruitment, events and programs. “It’s a pleasure to recognize and reward this gifted group for their hard work and creative abilities.”
