Additional Essay Category

For the second year, we have added an additional category specifically focused on essay reflections on October 27. Using the form below, respond to the following prompt:

“Please reflect on the massacre at Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha – one year later. Do you see changes in your community one year later, and if so, what are they? What have you observed about responses to antisemitism and hate crimes in the past year? What would you do to stop these forms of hatred in light of these changes and responses?”

Rules: Essays should use 12 point font, 1 inch margins, and should not be longer than two pages. Do not write your name on your essay for judging purposes. Responses are due at the same time as the other competition categories (Jan 9 2020 at 4pm). There will be one middle school and one high school awardee for this category.
