The Jewish Federation of Cleveland is seeking submissions for its 2020 Yom Hashoah V ‘Hagvurah, Cleveland’s commemoration of the Holocaust & Heroism, Contest. The contest, which focuses on the creative arts, is for middle school and high school writers and artists.
The theme for this year’s contest is “75 Years Since Liberation: What Have We Learned?” Students are invited to explore various topics, including what liberation looked like, what liberators saw, how it was documented and what lessons from the Holocaust can be learned today.
Entries, which can be essays or other forms of art, will be judged on the interpretation of the theme, originality and overall technique. Cash prizes up to $2,500 may be awarded. Winners, and their schools, will be recognized at the Yom Hashoah Commemoration on April 20, 2020 at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple in Beachwood.
Deadline for submissions is Feb. 7, 2020. For more information and entry forms, visit jewishcleveland.org/creativeartscontest, or contact Aviva Roland at
