Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission Awareness - Education - Inspiration

THGC Video Contest

Every year, the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC) holds a video contest, open to all Texas students in grades 6-12.  The theme changes annually, and the results are announced every April, to commemorate Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month.

The 2016 contest was a success!  Nearly 200 students participated, with 17 schools receiving awards.

If you are a Texas student who will be eligible to enter the contest next year, please stay tuned to our website for the upcoming guidelines.  You could be a 2017 scholarship award-winner!

In the meantime, please enjoy the below videos, both of which are 2016 winners.  You can also visit the THGC’s Video Contest Playlist to view past winning videos.
