Memories Spoken and Heard: Intersecting Perspectives of the Holocaust
Each school is invited to submit a total of three entries, consisting of art, film or writing (prose, poetry, article). Winning entries will be selected for both the middle and high school divisions with a first prize of $500 and a second prize of $250 in each category.
This year's Holocaust Art and Writing Contest begins when you listen thoughtfully to a survivor's full-length testimony and "hear" a testimony that "speaks" to you. Your entry will show the intersection between memory spoken and heard from your perspective as a writer, artist or film maker.
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 22 - 26, 2014.
