McDuffie students named winners in Georgia Farm Bureau art and essay contests

Two McDuffie County students were recently named district winners in statewide contests sponsored by the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation. Brianna Brown was recently named the Fourth District winner in the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation's 13th Annual Art Contest. Amanda Newsome was named the 4th District winner in the organization's Middle School Essay Contest.

A student at Thomson High School, Brianna received a $75 cash prize for being the Fourth District winner of Georgia Farm Bureau's Art Contest. She is the daughter of Tommy Burnett and Deborah Brown. A winner was selected from each of the organization's ten districts. The state winner and two runners-up were chosen from the district winners. Drawings were judged on artistic merit and how well the artwork represented Georgia agriculture. The contest was open to any student in ninth to twelfth grade.
