Each year, over 400 students from a wide range of backgrounds participate in the Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition, submitting original, creative responses to their Holocaust studies in the form of poetry, prose, painting, sculpture, music, dance and video.

Named in memory of the heroic young leader who organized Jewish resistance and gave his life fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, the Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition invites students, grades 7 through 12, to learn about the Holocaust and respond by means of creative expression.
