TOWSON, Md - Twenty students have been recognized for their submissions to the 16th Annual Baltimore County Middle School Writing Contest. It was sponsored and judged by the senior literary arts students at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology.
This year 334 entries were received for the contest.
"There were a few teachers with multiple winners," said Suzanne Supplee, Carver Center's literary arts department chair. "All submissions were scored blindly, so we didn't realize this until the winners were selected. We plan to recognize teachers at the celebration as well."
The students will receive awards at a ceremony on Thursday April 11th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Carver Center at 938 York Road in Towson.
Winners will receive certificates as well as gift cards to Barnes and Noble.
