Marcia Martin Unity/Diversity Expression Contest
2009-2010 Contest Winners
The winners of the Ninth Annual NASD Marcia Martin Unity/Diversity Contest have been announced. Entries were accepted from November 16 through December 11, 2009. The event was open to all students in the District, grades K-12. The contest provided students with an opportunity to express their interpretation of the theme: "Each one of us is wonderful; together we are diverse and strong. Help make NA a place where everyone knows they belong."

Entries were judged by a distinguished panel who commented that they were both insightful and truly inspirational. The District recognizes our students for their outstanding works and acknowledges their teachers for their guidance and encouragement.

All of the winners were honored and asked to share their entries at the Annual Diversity Luncheon on Tuesday, February 2nd, hosted by Dr. Patricia P. Green, Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Green welcomed the student winners whose talents continue to amaze and impress the District by embracing the ideas brought forth through this fine arts competition. Pictured below are the 2009-2010 winners!
