On May 24, 2023, The Origin Project ended the school year with the unveiling of The Origin Project Book Nine at Woodbridge Senior High School in Prince William County, Virginia. Newly published authors from Woodbridge High School, Brentsville District High School, Saunders Middle School and Unity Reed High School in Prince William County and Osbourn High School from the City of Manassas came together to celebrate their achievements and to receive a copy of the anthology.
Attendees at the unveiling were treated to performances by the Woodbridge High School Choir and Dancers. Special guest Michelle Garcia, the Poet Laureate of Prince William County and Woodbridge High School alumnus, treated the audience to a recitation of her work following readings from several of our young authors. Three students from the Peter Paul Development Center in the City of Richmond participated via prepared video as they recited their own writings. Students were also congratulated through video recording by Senator Tim Kaine and Senator Mark Warner.
