Winners of 2014 Diversity Contest

Winners of 2014 Diversity Contest

The theme for the 2014 Diversity Contest was Weirdness. Students were asked to reflect on Weirdness as a social stigma, as a source of wonder in nature, and as a force that challenges the status quo.

Projects were accepted in four areas:

  1. Visual arts
  2. Multimedia
  3. Written arts
  4. Performance

Students submitted more than 100 entries. Thank you to all who participated. Below are the winning entries. First-place winners in each category receive $1,000. Second-place winners in each category receive $500.
