McGraw-Hill sponsors youth writing contest to help promote tolerance in schools
With separate contests already established in major metro areas including New York City and Washington D.C. Metro, Diverse Minds is a writing and illustration contest to encourage K-12 students to celebrate tolerance and diversity. In addition to the wining students receiving a $5000 scholarship, each contest's winning books are published and also made into e-books available for free download on iTunes and Amazon.
In addition to promoting Diverse Minds throughout Columbus, McGraw-Hill helped raise funds for B'nai B'rith to grow and expand the contest in years to come. School Senior Vice President Lisa Carmona also acknowledged the student winners during the awards ceremony, speaking on the importance of tolerance and literacy in today's ever-connected education environment.
McGraw-Hill partners with students and educators around the world to create solutions that can accommodate learning needs and preferences that are as diverse as the people who use them each day. We're proud to help support the Diverse Minds Youth Writing Challenge and spread its positive message that inspires student creativity and literacy awareness.
