“As Gedenk continues to promote tolerance through artistic outlets; this is our second year to partner with “Scholastic Art & Writing Awards” for the “2015 Gedenk Award for Tolerance” . The incredible amount of submissions and quality of work last year, showed us that many students are passionate about this subject. I would like to congratulate our winners and thank all the students who have submitted their inspiring work and took an active step in promoting tolerance.”
2015 Gedenk Award for Tolerance!
Last year we partnered with “Scholastic Art & Writing Awards” to present a brand new award opportunity: The 2015 Gedenk Award for Tolerance. This new award asked middle and high school students to create original works of art or writing that reflect upon the lessons learned from the Holocaust and other genocides, with the intent to raise awareness of the importance of increasing tolerance to safeguard a peaceful society. In just this first year, we received over 2,500 submissions from creative teens around the country, and six young artists and writers whose work exemplified this mission were presented with the 2015 Gedenk Award for Tolerance along with a cash scholarship sponsored by Gedenk! Miri Ben-Ari, and Gedenk would like to congratulate the winners and we are excited to see what is submitted by students for the 2015 Awards!
