Raymond Andrews Prize winners awarded

The Morgan County African American Museum and its partners recently presented the Raymond Andrews Prize for Creative Writing to winners of this year’s contest. Cash prizes were awarded to the winning students, Levi Hubbard, $400; Evelyn McCanless, $100; Sameeha Sultana, $50; and Taylor Frederick, $50. Named for the late novelist, Raymond Andrews, who was born in the Plainview Community of Morgan County in 1934, the contest is designed to foster excitement for creative writing among area youth. Entries are judged blindly by a team of volunteer readers. Shown, from left, are Taylor Frederick, Evelyn McCanless, Jesse Freeman, Samantha Jones, Holly Schultz, Levi Hubbard, and Sameeha Sultana.
