Maltz Museum’s Stop the Hate Contest Winners Announced at Cleveland Museum of Art

Thu 3/14 @ 6:30-8:30PM

Stop the Hate is an annual campaign organized by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage to celebrate young people who are working against discrimination and forming more accepting environments. Through an essay contest, students grades 6-12 and their schools are eligible to receive scholarships, awards and anti-bias education programs.

Last year, student reflected on the legacy of Carl and Louis Stokes and their impacts nationwide. This year, the essay asked applicants to remember this quote by Anne Frank:

“How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world! How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make their contribution toward introducing justice straight away.”

 Applicants were then urged to remember a time when they experienced or witnessed injustice, bigotry or discrimination, how they reacted, and how they hope to create justice in the future. Anne Frank was only 13 when she went into hiding with her family, and is remembered for her optimism and hope.

Join in the award announcements and celebrate alongside these talented young students at the Stop the Hate Awards Ceremony! This free event will be held on Thu 3/14 @ 6:30-8:30pm at the Cleveland Museum of Art Gartner Auditorium.

You’ll hear students share personal stories of discrimination and ways they plan to help encourage the end of bullying, intolerance and indifference in their community.
