The Junior League of Greenville recently recognized 16-year-old Greenville native Charlotte Cross as the 2020 Young Women’s Writing Contest Winner at its annual meeting.
As the contest winner, Cross received a $500 scholarship award, and her winning essay, which focused on how her political views on energy reform were challenged while participating on a debate team, will be featured in the upcoming spring issue of the organization’s magazine, “Visions.”
“In being chosen for this award, I feel honored and humbly thankful,” said Cross. “I’m so grateful to the Junior League of Greenville members for their generosity in sponsoring this writing contest and for their support of young women. This opportunity has made me more aware of the League’s many contributions to our city and region. As I move into my senior year of high school and beyond, I hope to serve others in a manner that emulates the charitable spirit demonstrated by JLG members.”
The Young Women’s Writing Contest is open to all female students in Greenville County public, private and home school programs in grades six through 12. For more information, visit jlgreenville.org.
