Calling all Middle and High School Students: Enter your essays and artwork for the 2022 Yom Hashoah V’Hagvurah Creative Arts Contest, Cleveland’s Commemoration of the Holocaust & Heroism.

This year’s theme is: Resistance

Students are invited to explore such topics as: 

  • How is the theme of resistance during the Holocaust relevant to today’s society?
  • What does it mean to resist?

Be creative.
Outside of physical resistance, think of the different ways one can resist, such as spiritually, intellectually, through everyday actions, engaging, volunteering, organizing, and making your voice heard!

Deadline for entries is February 11, 2022.

• Visual arts, video, and photography contest for Middle and High School students
• Works will be judged on interpretation of theme, originality, and technique

Cash prizes up to $2,500 may be awarded.

Winners and their schools will be recognized at the Yom Hashoah V’Hagvurah commemoration on April 27.

Works will also be on display at the 78th Street Studios during the month of May.
