How Do Students Imagine A World Without Hate? Announcing the 2016-2017 Art Contest Winners

  • March 13, 2017


 True Colors, Julia W., Grade 7

This winter, eight judges from the Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region’s Education Committee had the very difficult task of acting as art critics, choosing winners from over 200 entries in ADL’s 2016-2017 Imagine A World Without Hate® Student Art Contest. The contest is open to students in grades K-12 attending 2016-2017 No Place For Hate® schools across Colorado. This year, ADL received the largest number of entries since the contest began.  Originality, creativity, universality and impact were the criteria used to select winners as each artist created their vision of a world without hate.  Seven of the winning entries will also appear in the 2018 Positive Impact! Calendar.  The winners will also be recognized on April 6, 2017 at the No Place for Hate® Celebration Breakfast, Tickets are still available for a limited time:

ADL is proud of all the students, along with their teachers and families, who participated in cultivating a love of art and a commitment to creating a world that is safe and inclusive for all.
