Being funny paid off big for one French student at Sandy Creek High.

Michelle Melear, along with 33 fellow French students from the school, participated in a cartoon competition sponsored by the French Consulate, Alliance Francaise and the American Association of Teachers of French, Georgia chapter. Melear finished second in the high school category and won several prizes including a full scholarship to attend a French Immersion Camp that will take place in February.

Two other Sandy Creek students also finished in the top 20. Meggie Foulk placed 18th and James Morgan 19th. High school students across six states submitted a total of 97 comic strips for the competition.

The comics were judged on text and quality of French, originality of the theme, storyline, quality of drawing, and use of color.
