Florida middle and high school students are invited to participate in the annual Holocaust Reflection Contest sponsored by the Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, Inc. and hosted by Nova Southeastern University. Students begin by selecting a quotation or survivor’s story that inspires them, then submit their reflection in the form of an original essay, a poem, a short film, or an art piece
By learning from the past, we enrich our future. History and experiences can become more than just testimonials and facts. They can serve as sources for mapping our nation’s future. The stories of Holocaust survivors are rich with lessons and inspiration.
This year, Sophomore, Sofia De la Torre, placed 2nd in the High School Art Division. Sofia will receive a financial award. Also, she and her family are invited to a dinner and an awards ceremony with Holocaust survivors, the Governor and other dignitaries.
Congratulations, Sofia! We are very proud of your hard work.
