2010 Echoes and Reflections Essay Contest Winners announced
Date: May 25, 2010
The Arizona Region of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 Echoes and Reflections Moral Courage Essay Contest. This contest, open to 7th through 12th graders, uses the Holocaust as a backdrop for students to explore the concept of moral courage. Students learn about individuals who stood up against injustice and explore the impact of that decision. This not only challenged the students, but also empowered them to consider that their individual decisions can make a difference.
The top 3 essay winners in each category are awarded a monetary prize. The Fennemore Foundation has graciously provided the funding for this year. Essays were judged in a three tier process by educators and professionals from throughout the state.
The following have earned top honors in their respective categories:
Grades 7/8 (145 Submissions)
Grades 9/10 (124 Submissions)
Grades 11/12 (177 Submissions)
