17th Annual K-12 Human Rights Art Contest

January 1 - April 11


One day this terrible war will be over. The time will come when we’ll be people again and not just Jews! Who has inflicted this on us? Who has set us apart from all the rest? Who has put us through such suffering? Anne Frank, April 11, 1944

Incorporate the universal lessons of the Holocaust through original art to “Reveal the Human Spirit.”

For the art piece, there are no restrictions on medium so students should feel free to explore their own creative interpretations.  Possible themes to incorporate into student art may include: human suffering, heroism, decency, defiance, dignity, identity, discrimination, survival, the power of words, faith, or hope.

Submission Requirements: Please clearly PRINT your name, school, grade, preferred email address, teacher’s name and school phone number on the back of your art piece.  Please also include a permission release form and artist’s statement reflecting how the work expresses the theme.  permission-form

Grand Prize: $100 cash and $50 for the sponsoring teacher

K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade level winners: $50 cash each.

 Art pieces must be received at the Center on or before April 11, 2017.
