Congratulations to Paige Norris, an eighth-grader from Mill Springs Academy, who won the Water Essay Contest for Fulton County.  

Norris' essay was one of hundreds received from sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders in Bartow, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale counties.  

Students were asked to write a 300- to 500-word essay about water conservation. A subcommittee of the Metro Water District's Education Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) came together to judge the essays. The district-wide winner and runner-up were chosen from the winners from each county.
