Order from the following NAHS members (or send orders with your daughter to Ms. Mitchell in G-2):
2016 Sala Kryszek Art Competition sponsored by the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center
To thoughtfully respond to the prompt, carefully consider these questions:
How could the Holocaust happen in a country like Germany, a country with abundant education and people who achieved great advancements in science, art, music, literature and philosophy? Do you think that something like this still happens in the world today? What steps can you take now and in the future to offset these events from taking place?
Using what you have learned about the Holocaust, create a piece of writing or a work of visual art that reflects your response to the above questions. Visual art submissions require a brief ‘artist statement’ of one or two sentences describing your association between Holocaust history and the artwork you created in response to the prompt.
To participate, create a work of art illustrating how one’s perspective and actions can be altered by a specific experience, whether inspired by Holocaust studies or some other relevant event.
Any flat media no larger than 18” X 24” will be accepted. Artwork must be mounted or matted for easel display. Cash prizes and grand prize trip to Washington, D.C. Deadline is March 18, 2016. More information at http://www.ojmche.org/educate/education/sala-kryszek-art-writing
