Students in grades 4-12 are invited to submit their original essays and poetry for possible publication in the 2016 Columbia Values Diversity Celebration Student Writings Booklet. This booklet will be distributed to over 1,000 people at the annual community celebration on January 14, 2016. You can view past year's booklets below.
The theme for the 23rd annual Columbia Values Diversity Celebration is: “Unity in Our Community.” Because Columbia is a city of many ethnic groups, religions, cultures, and opinions, it is important that all community members know that their story and their voice are important and valued. Submit an essay or poem describing how there is unity in our community despite our differences.
Deadline for submitting writings is: Friday, November 13, 2015.
