Norman Park Elementary student Ila Jane Thompson is a regional winner in the Young Georgia Authors (YGA) Writing Competition. Ila is in the 2nd grade and won the regional competition with her entry titled “Lemonade on Valentine’s,” a short story about helping friends. Her entry will now be submitted to the state competition. 

The purpose of the writing competition is to encourage students to develop an enthusiasm for and expertise in their writing, to provide a context to celebrate their writing successes, and to recognize student achievement in arts and academics. This prestigious competition has engaged Georgia students for over two decades and is open to any student currently enrolled in Georgia public schools, grades K-12. 

The competition is sponsored by the Georgia Language Arts Supervisors (GLAS) and the Georgia RESA Network with support from the Georgia Department of Education.
