Northland Diversity Council Essay Contest
January 09, 2012
I represent MCPL at the Northland Diversity Council. The Council is promoting the essay contest in school districts and through MCPL to students in the Northland. The purpose of this competition is to examine issues of gender, race, and ethnicity that confront our area today as our communities become more diverse. Young people of all ages are invited to illustrate the topic this year through participating in the contest "Unity through Diversity." Students can compose an essay, create a poster, make a video, or write a poem, play or story (depending on their grade level) on the immigrant or minority group they believe has provided the most benefit to America.
The prizes are an iPod Shuffle for Elementary and Middle School children, an iPod Nano for High School students, and an iPod Touch for College students. More information can be found on the entry forms available at Northland MCPL branches.
