Our Dream: The Journey Continues

The theme for the 27th annual Columbia Values Diversity Celebration is: “Our Dream: The Journey Continues.” Because Columbia is a city of many ethnic groups, religions, cultures, and opinions, it is important that all community members know that their story and their voice are important and valued.

Students in grades 4-12 are invited to submit written responses to the theme. A selection committee will choose student submissions which will be published in our 2020 Student Writings booklet and distributed at the event. Three-five students will also be selected to have their submissions featured in our student writings video which will be shown during the event.
