2019 Kappy Family Anne Frank Art & Writing Competition Banner

Our hope for the 2018 Kappy Family Anne Frank Art & Writing Competition is to empower and inspire today’s students to lead our world to a better future. With that in mind, the theme for the second annual competition is The Power of Hope. We invite all students in grades 9-12 from Oakland and Macomb County to reflect on the lessons of the Holocaust and to create a written or artistic response to the following quotation from Anne Frank’s diary:

“Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and make us strong again.”

June 6, 1944

Three winners from each of the following categories will be announced and honored at an award ceremony and gallery opening on May 17, 2018:

Painting | Drawing | Photography | Poetry | Fiction | Non-fiction

First place winners will receive $250, second place winners will receive $125, and third place winners will receive $75.

The teacher and school of each first place winner will each receive a $200 Amazon gift card.
