“As Gedenk continues to promote tolerance through artistic outlets; this year we partnered with Scholastic Art and Writing with the ‘2014 Gedenk Award for Tolerance’ The incredible amount of submissions and quality of work 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.”
2014 Gedenk Award for Tolerance!
This year we partnered with Scholastic Art & Writing Awards to present a brand new award opportunity: The 2014 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 2014 Gedenk Award for Tolerance along with a cash scholarship sponsored by Gedenk! The Alliance, Miri Ben-Ari, and Gedenk would like to congratulate the winners.
