• Marcia Martin Unity/Diversity Expression Contest

    2010-2011 Contest Winners
    The winners of the Tenth Annual NASD Marcia Martin Unity/Diversity Contest have been selected. Entries were accepted from November 15 through December 10, 2010. 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 panel of people very impressed with the students' insightful and inspirational work both in the Fine Arts and Writing competitions. The District recognizes the students for their outstanding work and acknowledges the teachers for their guidance, encouragement, and support.
    All of the winners were honored and asked to share their entries at the Annual Diversity Luncheon on Tuesday, February 1st, hosted by Dr. Patricia P. Green, Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Green welcomed the student winners whose talent continues to amaze and impress the District as they embrace the ideas brought forth through this fine arts competition. Pictured below are the 2010-2011 winners!
