JSU Language Arts Olympiad, Writers' Bowl, and Holocaust Writing Competition

JSU Competitions for High School Students

Imagining the Holocaust Writing Competition (Grades 7-12) / March
The English faculty at JSU developed the idea of “Imagining the Holocaust,” a writing contest designed to teach Holocaust history and its continuing influence in today's world. The latest competition will be open to many kinds of writing, from essays to more creative approaches in poetry and fiction. Entries will be due on March 1 of every year (when that date falls during the weekend, entries will be due the following Monday), and prizes, including U.S. Savings Bonds worth $100, $75, and $50 to the top three winners in each category, will be awarded. The top winners will also be invited to participate in JSU's annual Holocaust Memorial Commemoration in April.
