The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education is proud to announce the 25th Annual Siegelbaum Literary and Visual Arts Competition for 2022.
The theme for this school year's competition is: The People Who Inspire Us.
We’d like to hear your story, about the person who inspires you and how they have influenced your life.
We are grateful for the generosity of Judy Siegelbaum, who established this competition in memory of her husband, Dr. Harold Siegelbaum, whose vision helped found the Museum.
The competition has three separate categories—Literary Arts, Multimedia, and Visual Arts. Entries will be judged in two separate divisions: one for students in grades six through eight, and the other for students in grades nine through twelve.
Each category and division will award First, Second, and Third place winners with gift cards. The submitting teacher of each first prize winning student will also receive a $100 gift card to spend for their classroom (one per teacher). Work will be judged by a prominent group of educators.
The deadline for submission of entries is March 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 16, 2022 and will be recognized at an Awards Ceremony on June 7, 2022.
We look forward to working with you and hope you will encourage your students to enter the Siegelbaum Literary and Visual Arts Competition of 2022! The guidelines, entry forms and all instructions for the competition are available below.
Please feel free to contact the Museum at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.
Share the story about someone who inspires you. Tell us why you chose this person and how they have influenced your life.

The submitting teacher of each first place prize winning student will receive $100 to spend for their classroom (one per teacher). Work will be judged by a prominent group of educators
