Leave the JUDGING to the jury.

We are students at Ballard Elementary Global Studies Magnet School and we are citizens of the world who embody diversity. We should not just tolerate each other; we should love and respect each other. Our differences make us special. By combining self-portraits of 12 second, third and fifth graders, we created a unified picture of diversity. Although each part of the face was created by a different student, the parts are combined into three complete faces. The finished product, just as in real life, is more interesting when people are different.
