Through Discovery to Action: Making Meaning from Memory
Each school is invited to participate in the 16th Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest. Participating schools may submit a total of three entries (art, film and/or writing) from three individual students. Schools will be eligible to win a first prize award of $500. Students awarded second prize in each category in the middle and high school competitions will be awarded $250.
Discovery unites awareness and action. This year's Holocaust Art and Writing Contest asks you to locate discovery within a specific survivor or rescuer testimony and then create a work of art (in prose, art, or film) that expresses the link you see between discovery and action, on the part of both the survivor or rescuer and yourself.
Generous supporters have made it possible for us to invite the first prize recipient in each category, the recipient’s parent or guardian, and the recipient’s teacher, to participate in an expense-paid study trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and other sites in Washington, D.C. from June 21 - 25, 2015.
