NO PLACE FOR HATE® STUDENT ART CONTEST – Winners have been chosen  – Get Inspired!

Art provides a wonderful way for students to express themselves and offers a window for our feelings to be expressed in shape and color. ADL is thrilled to announce the 2021-2022 No Place for Hate Student Art Contest Winners!  We applaud the time, energy and dedication that each student put into their artwork and appreciate all the attention and support provided by art teachers and families for this artwork. Thank you to all involved for using art as an expression of what is possible and what we are feeling during these times.

Eight judges had the challenging task of judging each piece based on originality, universality and impact. ADL’s art contest was open to all students in current 2021-2022 No Place for Hate Schools. We had over 125 entries in four age groups from 18 different schools in our region. Check out all the winning art and pay extra attention at their descriptions: 2021-2022 Art Contest Winners

The purpose of this contest is to provide an opportunity for elementary, middle and high school students to submit original 2D artwork to convey their vision of a world without prejudice through art.  The aim is to showcase artists that will inspire ideas, motivate their communities and renew the energy for what we can do to challenge bullying behavior, prejudice and discrimination. Winner are chosen within four age categories for students to participate in this 2D Art Contest:

  • Grades K-2 (lower elementary)
  • Grades 3-5 (upper elementary)
  • Grades 6-8 (middle school)
  • Grades  9-12 (high school)
