The contest "My nationality has a story" was organized by the UN Agency for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The objective was to invite students to reflect on the importance of the right of every child to have a nationality for the construction of identity and thus also value diversity and avoid the spread of prejudice. There were more than 200 children who participated and Renata, a 8th grade Nido student received an honorable mention for her story "My nationality". The ceremony was attended by Renata, her classmates, her family and Spanish teachers Constanza Burgueño and Daniela Torres.
