To help our county combat hate, Montgomery County Public Schools, in partnership with the Montgomery County Faith Community Working Group, is launching a contest titled United We Learn: Combating Hate Through the Arts. The goal of the contest is to provide students with a creative, structured opportunity to explore issues of prejudice and learn about the values of respect, diversity and civility. 

The contest is open to students from all grade levels. Submission will be judged by level (elementary, middle, and high) and by medium. Additional details about the contest, including rules, will be available online.

The contest will formally open Friday, March 17, 2017 and will close Friday, April 21, 2017. Winners will be announced May 22, 2017.

Students can submit digital entries via the online platform at the above link. Students can also deliver submissions to the main office.
