The Jewish Federation of Cleveland will offer a total of $2,500 to winning entries in its 2013 creative arts contest for middle school and high school students.
All students in grades 6-12 in Northeast Ohio schools are invited to submit creative writing and visual arts entries. This year's theme is the "Warsaw Ghetto Uprising." Next year marks the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising, when Jewish resistance fighters held off German oppression for a month.
Participating students are asked to use the uprising or others as inspiration in their projects. The Federation suggests writing or designing from the point of view of a fighter, inhabitant or somebody on the outside looking in as a few examples.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1. The winners will be recognized at the annual Yom Hashoah V’Hagvura, Holocaust & Heroism Commemoration on April 7 at Park Synagogue.
