2017 Journalism Winners

Each year students in middle and high school have the opportunity to participate in the North Carolina Christian School Association’s Journalism Contest.  Students can write either a poem, essay or short story.  The top entry from each category is then submitted to the NCCSA for judging on the state level against all of the other entries from schools across the state.  

Congratulations to the following students who placed in the top three in the state.  Take a moment to read their award-winning poems, short stories, and essays.
