Students in grades 4-12 are invited to submit their original essays and poetry for possible publication in the 2015 Columbia Values Diversity Celebration Student Writings Booklet. This booklet will be distributed to over 1,000 people at the annual community celebration on January 15, 2015. You can view past year's booklets below.
The theme for the 22nd annual Columbia Values Diversity Celebration is: “Harmonious Voices in a Diverse Community”. Because Columbia is a city of many ethnic groups, religions, cultures, and opinions, every member of our community has a unique life story. It is important that all community members know their story and their voice are important and valued.
