Plant City students win cash and prizes in history contest

PLANT CITY Plant City High School students Jackson Hardee and Ashlyn Yarbrough tied for first place in an annual photojournalism contest sponsored by the Plant City Photo Archives and History Center.

Students were judged on a story they wrote, accompanied by at least one photo pertaining to the area’s history. Both students won $100 for finishing first in the contest, now in its fifth year.

Hardee wrote about the Glover School and Bealsville, Inc., the non-profit organization that maintains and operates the historic school campus. Yarbrough chose to write about McGinnes Lumber Co., which operated for many years near downtown.

Other participants this year included Luis Arellano, Shelby Baerwalde, Victoria Bowen, Raul Camacho, Taylor Fulton, Katelin Jenkins, Kendall Johnson, Quinton Langford, Kate McGuire, and Morgan Napper, all of whom received certificates and minor monetary awards for their participation.

The contest sponsor was David Wolf, owner and operator of Haught Funeral Home.

All entries will be on display for about a month in the exhibit gallery at the photo archives, 106 S. Evers St.
