This contest is sponsored by the Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, Inc. and hosted by Nova Southeastern University (NSU). Students from across the state of Florida have been participating in the contest since 2015. Each year, we receive approximately 1,500 entries from more than 100 schools. All contest submissions are reviewed and judged by a panel of volunteer educators and community members.
