Tenth Annual White Rose Memorial Essay Contest

The Council for Holocaust Education is excited announce the Tenth Annual White Rose Memorial Essay Contest.

The essay contest is held in honor of the resistance group, the White Rose Society, who penned essays which challenged citizens to resist Nazi policies and encouraged non-violent political dissent.  The White Rose members knew that to be silent in the face of evil was to surrender to it, encourage it, and enable it to grow stronger.  Thus, their movement united others to resist Nazi tyranny by striving to eradicate the “face of evil” before it destroyed more innocent lives. Inspired by their words of strength, our annual essay contest provides a forum for local students to use their words to make a difference in today’s world. Entries are being accepted in the middle school division (grades 6-8) and high school division (9-12) until March 31, 2017. Wining essays receive cash prizes. The prompt and submission guidelines can be found at https://jewishtulsa.org/whiterose/. Please email dhe@jewishtulsa.org<mailto:dhe@jewishtulsa.org> for more information.
