The International Art and Writing Contest „Wealth of Diversity" is a school project that encourages children of elementary school age to reflect on the values of cultural diversity and the importance of respecting differences, highlighting the most noble desires and human values. The contest was launched in 2013 as a part of the Vojvodina Provincial Government's co-ordinated project, which also included the Croatian Cultural and Educational Ensemble "Matija Gubec" Tavankut, and which promoted the values of multiculturalism in Vojvodina and Podunavlje region through the prism of tourism. With our successful participation in the project, our village has confirmed its openness, as well as its cultural richness and diversity.

Prizes will be given to authors and mentors at the main ceremony on April 5, 2019 at the Primary School „Matija Gubec“ in Tavankutu, and for the awarded pupils and mentors accommodation and nutrition will be provided.
For the seventh consecutive year, our school organized the International Fine Art Literary and Journalistic Contest "The Wealth of Diversity". The aim of the competition is to encourage pupils of elementary school age to reflect on the values of diversity in society and the importance of tolerance.
This year they answered their work on the topic: "I want to be your friend". Over 400 papers were received at the school's address, counting all three categories of the competition, and students from Serbia and Croatia participated.
The highlight of this competition is a three-day social gathering that took place from April 4th to 6th, during which the participants were better acquainted and made friends through thought-out activities. They participated in creative workshops: "Respect Diversity", "Glagolitic Search for Hidden Treasures", "Roljanje", as well as workshops "Quiz of General Culture", "Karaoke", "Slamarska", "Moonlight 9" and "We learn how to divanit bunjevacki".
The central event took place on April 5, 2019 in the school's gym, where awards and diplomas were given to authors of the most successful works and their mentors. Special guests at the award ceremony were children from "Kolevka", who received a special applause.
After the official program, a great surprise for all participants was organized at the school yard Bikeers from Osijek, on their motorcycles, dressed as big rabbits, gave children sweets. Smiles on their faces spoke more than a thousand words.
On the last day of the gathering, guests enjoyed a horse ride through Tavankut, visiting a local orchard and Čikerija Forest.
