The Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia's Jewish Community Relations Council. The annual event encourages all Philadelphia-area middle school and high school students to learn about and reflect upon the history of the Holocaust. Students are invited to submit Holocaust themes and lessons through essays, poems, short works of fiction, two-and three-dimensional, as well as multimedia works of art, original songs, musical compositions, and dance. The contest is named in memory of the young leader who led the Jewish revolt against the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto.
