Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission Awareness - Education - Inspiration

2019 Student Contests Deadline

February 28, 2019
Time: 4:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This year's theme is Texas Survivors.  Survivors of the Holocaust and modern genocides have attempted to convey their experiences to others, especially the younger generations that represent the future.  By engaging survivors' personal testimonies, Texas students can assume the role of witness and use their knowledge to improve the world in which we live.  

Each submission must be accompanied by the electronic application (form below), parent/guardian permission form (see below for link), and honesty clause form (see below for link).   

All entries are due by 4:00 PM CST on February 28, 2019.  Please see below for the complete prompt, details, and guidelines.  

The contest results will be announced in April 2019, to commemorate Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month.  Each middle school winner will receive a monetary award of $250, and each high school winner will receive a monetary award of $500, generously funded by Friends of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission. 

Contact Cheyanne Perkins with any questions, at (512) 463-5674 or cheyanne.perkins@thgc.texas.gov.
