Writing Contest Winners: Cleveland Daily Banner article

Bachman's award winners from the Young Southern Student Writers contest.“Two of Bachman Academy’s English teachers, Dianne Craig and Dixie Gray, received letters from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga announcing one or more of their students have been named winners in the 2011 Young Southern Student Writers Contest.

There were more than 5,000 entries in the competition this year. The winners from Bachman Academy are: Alex Nangle-Ward and Travis Thornton in the High School Prose division, and Ben Feingold and Travis Thornton in the High School Poetry category.

The 2011 Young Southern Student Writers awards ceremony will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga. Following a brief talk by novelist Allen Weir, contest winners will walk across the stage to receive their medals and a booklet which contains copies of all the winning entries.

It is located on 210 acres of farmland on Brymer Creek Road in McDonald, Tennessee. For additional information about the school, call 423-479-4523, or visit its website at”;

“Summer Symphony” by Ben Feingold

Summer Symphony

by Ben Feingold

Trees dance in the wind
Their theater is a sea of green
Where insects sit and hear
The symphonic sounds
Of a summer day
The stage is lit with sunshine
The clouds are curtains drawn
Birds enter the balcony
And add their song
Lights dim, limbs take their bows
One show ends
As a new symphony begins
