Students in grades 4-12 were invited to submit their original essays and poetry for possible publication in the 2014 Columbia Values Diversity Celebration Student Writings Booklet. This booklet will be distributed to over 1,100 people at the annual community celebration on January 16, 2014. You can view past year's booklets below.
The theme for the 21st annual Columbia Values Diversity Celebration is: “The Rich Tapestry of Diversity”. Because Columbia is a city of many ethnic groups, religions, cultures, and opinions, every member of our community has a unique life story. It is important that all community members know their story and their voice are important and valued.
