ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
The Albany Museum of art announced the winners of its annual writing contest Thursday night.
The "A Picture is worth a thousand words" contest gave students a chance to write essays inspired by art.
11th grade Deerfield-Windsor student Larkin Carden won first place in the high school division for her essay on the "Frog King" painting.
"Writing it, I didn't realize all of those things about myself, until I started approaching that narrative which made me realize the arts and writing can really reveal things about yourself that you might not understand yet," said Larkin.
Winners got cash prizes and their essays will be features on the museum's website or a special publication.
