The theme for the 2017 Diversity Contest was The Cost of Free Speech. Students were asked to reflect on a hard, central question. In today’s climate, is the First Amendment fact or fiction?
Projects were accepted in two areas: (1) written expression, (2) arts and performance.
Thank you to all students who participated. Below are the winning entries. First-place winners in each category receive $1,500. Second-place winners in each category receive $1,000, and third-place winners receive $500.
