THE GEDENK CREATIVE CHALLENGE!
We are excited to see what is coming in for the Gedenk Creative Challenge. Remember to check your regional deadlines and submit your work!
The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers has partnered with the Gedenk Movement to present a special creative challenge for the 2014 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The Gedenk Award for Tolerance asks students to create original works of art or writing that demonstrate their role in cultivating tolerance.
Five top works will receive National Medals and academic awards of $1,000 each for work addressing the Gedenk Movement’s important message and mission.
Submissions should reflect upon lessons learned from the Holocaust and other genocides, and attempt to raise awareness of the importance of increasing tolerance to safeguard a peaceful society.
Work may be submitted within any of the Awards’ categories of art or writing, via the Awards’ online registration system. For more information about this special award, visit http://www.artandwriting.org/gedenk, and check out our partners at the Gedenk Movement at http://www.gedenkmovement.org.
