By Harriet Staff

From this The Citizen article:

Two Peachtree City students took first and second places in a regional poetry contest sponsored by the Atlanta Hawks.

A student from Peachtree City, Malcolm McLachlan, who attends The Campus in Peachtree City, won first place out of all 15 participants.

In second place was Morgan Ritson of McIntosh High School in Peachtree City.

These 15 students from 10 different schools in eight different counties throughout Georgia presented their poems in the final round of competition.

The theme for this year’s Poetry Slam was “I Was Born This Way” and finalists were judged on connection to the topic, overall message and originality/creativity.
