2013-2014 Diversity Expression Contest Winners
Each year, students in the North Allegheny School District have been confronted with the thoughtful challenge of finding a way to express their individual feelings about belonging and diversity through creative writing, music, or the visual arts. Year after year, students have produced excellent works of art to illustrate what they know about the importance of being both unique and accepted in the world.
