The Sharon Enkin student award on the Holocaust is open to all students in Grades 10, 11, and 12.

All entries become the property of the contest sponsored by the Enkin Family and the Hamilton Jewish Federation in partnership with the Hamiton-Wentworth District School Board. Winners will be notified by March 26, 2021.

Although Auschwitz was liberated 76 years ago, the lessons of the Holocaust are more important than ever in our world. Why is it so important in 2021 for young people to learn the lessons that the Holocaust shows us?
