The theme for the 2018 Diversity Contest was Through Another’s Eyes. Students were asked to engage in an experience that represented a different view than their own and then express that experience through writing, art or performance.
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.
