Winners of literary competition announced

Staff Writer

The Arts Council of Lincoln County has chosen the 2012 winners of the Flo Robinson Literary Competition and will be celebrating them Sunday at the Cultural Center.
The event is named after the late Flora Robinson, a Lincolnton resident and arts lover.
Robinson died in the early ’80s, but left funds to be disbursed to various charities and nonprofit organizations around the area. Her passion for poetry and the arts inspired the annual event that welcomes adults and students in elementary, middle and high schools throughout the county to submit poetry and prose pieces for consideration.
