Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition 2015-2016

HAMEC is pleased to help advertise the Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition for 2015/2016 sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia's Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).

It is an opportunity for middle and high school students in grades 7-12 from public, parochial and private schools from throughout the region to respond to the lessons of the Holocaust and the related issues of ethnic, racial and religious intolerance through creative expression. Each year over 400 students from a wide range of backgrounds participate in this artistic competition that judges students in poetry, prose, painting, sculpture, music, dance and video. An awards ceremony is held each June in conjunction with the exhibition and all artistic submissions are exhibited professionally by Moore College of Art and Design.

Entries are due by Wednesday, March 9, 2016.
