Calling all Cleveland area middle and high school wordsmiths and artists: you are invited to enter the 2017 annual Yom Hashoah V’Hagvurah (Cleveland’s commemoration of the Holocaust and heroism) Contest. Essays and works of art are sought that portray this year’s theme, “Stand Up, Speak Out: Stopping Persecution Then and Now.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to consider the lessons of the Holocaust from a unique perspective and to creatively interpret that point of view through writing and art,” said Richard Rakos, Creative Arts Committee Co-Chair.

Entries will be judged on interpretation of the theme, originality and technique. Cash prizes totaling $2,500 will be awarded. Winners and their schools will be recognized at the Yom Hashoah Commemoration on April 23, 2017 at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple.

The Yom Hashoah Creative Arts Contest and the annual Yom Hashoah Event are sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Kol Israel Foundation.

Deadline for entries is February 14, 2017. For more information, contact Debbie Klein at the Federation at dklein@jcfcleve.org or 216-593-2834.
