The Morris Museum Combining Voices Literary Competition Winners!
For many years, the Morris Museum of Art has organized Combining Voices, a special literary competition for students in grades 4 through 12. Each year, in their classrooms, at home on their computers, or on special tours of the museum, students from all over the Central Savannah River Area view and discuss five works of art in the museum’s permanent collection. Students create works of poetry or prose inspired by one of the paintings and submit their work for judging. It is a competitive undertaking. At EDS, students viewed each of the five works of art online and responded to the artwork by composing original poems and short stories based on the artwork. Carolina R. won first place in the middle school prose category for her short story, “Hiding the Pain”, inspired by John McCrady’s painting, I Can’t Sleep. Congratulations, Carolina!
