• 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.

    The 2013-2014 Annual Diversity Express Contest, sponsored by the NASD Marcia Unity/Diversity Committee, was open to all NA students in grades K-12 in November and December. The winners for each grade-level and category are:
