Combining Voices is a special literary competition designed for students in grades 4 through 12. The program encourages participants to submit creative writing entries bases on one of these five paintings from the Morris Museum’s permanent collection. While students do not have to visit the museum to enter, we thought we could use this space to share the paintings that are on this year's contest, along with the rules and some tips.
Below are the selected five works for the 2019–2020 Combining Voices Literary Competition. All artworks are from the permanent collection of the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, Georgia. Combining Voices is sponsored by Georgia Council for the Arts, the Cullum Foundation, Creel-Harison Foundation, Dorothy Mustin Buttolph Foundation, and SunTrust Foundation.
