In observance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, USC Shoah Foundation—The Institute for Visual History and Education (USC Shoah Foundation) and Discovery Education have announced the second annual Stronger Than Hate Challenge.
The Stronger Than Hate Challenge builds upon a USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education no-cost and standards-aligned educational program, Teaching with Testimony, which empowers students to create a better future by listening to and learning from the powerful testimony of survivors and witnesses of genocide.
Winners are eligible to receive up to $10,000 in prizes, including a trip to UCS Shoah Foundation’s Global Headquarters in Los Angeles, California to learn directly from expert storytellers. See official rules for more details.
