Eight Paideia students were recognized in the 2021 Georgia River of Words Competition, an international poetry and art competition for students in grades K-12. Two Paideia elementary students were national finalists in poetry. The six other students were Georgia winners in poetry and art.
The River of Words competition is coordinated jointly in Georgia by the Georgia Center for the Book and Georgia Project WET (Water Education for Teachers, a program of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources). The competition invites students to submit visual art or poetry about Georgia’s natural environment, including humanity’s impact on the landscape and watershed.
