The purpose of the Young Georgia Authors (YGA) writing competition is to encourage students to develop 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. The YGA has been engaging Georgia students for more than two decades and is open to any student currently enrolled in Georgia public schools, grades K-12.
