Clarke Central's publications sweep state awards
The student-led publications Iliad and Odyssey, as well as the Odyssey's website, won top honors recently in the annual Georgia Scholastic Press Association's annual awards. These literary and news magazines, published by students at Clarke Central High School, are advised by David Ragsdale, an alumnus of the College of Education and a member of the college's Board of Visitors.
Clarke Central earned all three All-Georgia awards, GSPA's top honor for publications. Clarke Central won for Odyssey Newsmagazine, as well as its news website, Odyssey Online, and literary magazine, Iliad.
GSPA holds its annual General Excellence competition each spring and distributes the awards during a banquet at UGA. This year, 73 publications entered the competition in categories that include literary magazine, newsmagazine, newspaper, news website, TV news broadcast and yearbook. Entries are judged by professional journalists and Grady College faculty.
