The 2023 Art & Writing Competition

The Art & Writing Competition seeks to educate students in 7th-12th grade about the Holocaust, engage them through Anne Frank and Elie Wiesel’s profound stories, and empower them to move from thought to action using creative expression.

In 2023, we will additionally take inspiration from the artwork of Erich Lichtblau-Leskly, as featured in the temporary exhibit “To Paint is to Live.” Any student, regardless of age, will be able to respond to any prompt, or multiple prompts.

Winning students will receive a $200 check, and their sponsoring teachers will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
