Purposeful Telling Through Memory to Action

Register now for the 20th Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest, presented by Chapman University and The 1939 Society in collaboration with the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, NJ.

Students engage directly with the history of the Holocaust and the personal memories of Holocaust survivors by viewing a survivor or rescuer video testimony from one of the approved websites and responding to the contest prompt by creating an original work of art, film, poetry or prose.

  • Entries must be postmarked by February 1, 2019, or submitted digitally by February 4, 2019
  • First and second place students, their teachers and schools will be awarded cash prizes in each category (middle & high school students)
  • Each first-place student, their teacher and a parent will be invited to participate in an expense-paid study trip to Los Angeles, CA from June 23 to June 27, 2019
