The theme for the 2019 Diversity Contest was Implicit Bias. Students were asked to consider how implicit bias affected them, their interactions with others, their community, and society.
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.
