Vanessa Y. Bryant Literary Scholarship
Our Founder established the Vanessa Y. Bryant Literary Scholarship in 2018 in memory of my late mother, Vanessa Yvette Bryant. The late Mrs. Bryant was a native of Fort Valley (GA), a graduate of Peach County High School, an avid reader, and a talented writer that supported academic causes and instilled the importance of education in her two daughters. A prize of $500 is awarded to a junior or senior in Peach County and judging is based on presentation, originality, creativity, and adherence to the annual theme.
The contest was held in 2018 and 2019, but was canceled in 2020. We look forward to reintroducing it to the community.
Peach Book Publishing Contest
The 2018 Peach Publishing Contest aimed to encourage children in Peach County (GA) to explore their creativity as well as provide opportunities to have their work professionally published. One grand prize winner, Keenon Solomon, received a one-year publishing contract with Mynd Matters Publishing along with an assortment of cash, books, and more! Up to fifteen honorable mentions received a cash prize.
