Winners Announced in United We Learn Arts Contest
MCPS announced the winners of its second United We Learn arts contest during the Board of Education’s April 12 business meeting.
Winners were announced at the elementary, middle and high school levels in two categories.
In 2017, the district launched the contest with a goal of providing students with a creative, structured opportunity to explore topical issues and learn about the values of respect, diversity and civility. This year’s theme, All Means All, challenged students to think critically about the meaning of equity.
The contest was open to students from all grade levels. Submissions, which were judged by level and by medium, were created by groups of two students or more. The categories were: written word and visual art.
