The Holocaust Remembrance Project is a national essay contest for high school students that is designed to encourage and promote the study of the Holocaust. Participation in this project encourages students to think responsibly, be aware of world conditions that undermine human dignity, and make decisions that promote the respect and value inherent in each human being.
First-place winning students, teachers, and Holocaust survivors participate in an all-expense paid trip to a leading Holocaust Museum. In previous years, the program held its scholars week in Washington, D.C., to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum; last year, the scholar’s week took place in South Florida, and this year, the top 10 scholars and chosen educators will travel to Boston.
Since the project’s inception in 1995, the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships and prizes. Tens of thousands of high school students have participated as researchers and writers. Scholarship Awards for First Place Finalists (10 each year) begin at $2,500. Each year, special scholarships are awarded by special friends of the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation.
