MADISON – Alabama Writer’s Forum has recognized and honored the creative work by several students at Bob Jones High School.

Individual compositions, along with group submissions, placed in the top ranks of the forum’s contest:

* “Exceptional Graphic Design and Layout” — “The Eclectic,” an annual compilation of students’ literary work, was praised for its format and flow. Students submit short stories, poetry, nonfiction, scripts, comics, art and photography for the publication.

“The Eclectic,” the award-winning literary magazine by student authors, usually contains submissions for more than 100 people. Students in the Multimedia Publications design class compile 300-plus pages for “The Eclectic.”

* Senior Portfolio Scholarship – Madison Tanner earned this award.

* Nonfiction Finalists – Emily Duong and Gianna Dieselberg produced the works for this honor.

“Congratulations to these students,” Brandy Panagos said. A National Board Certified Teacher, Panagos advises for “Patriot Pages” news site and “The Eclectic.” She teaches creative writing, multimedia publications and design, along with English and business-career tech courses.
