HTMC Creative Arts Competition Theme: “First They Came For…”

One of last year’s Creative Arts Competition winners, Maia Schlusse from HAFTR Cedarhurst, with her artwork, “We Remember.”

The theme of this year’s competition is “First They Came For….” What does it mean to stand up for others, to be an ally? What are the obligations and responsibilities involved in being an ally? Martin Niemoller, a German clergyman, famously stated after World War II that when other groups were targeted, he didn’t step in, and when the Nazis came for him, there was no one left to speak up. Art submissions this year should reflect on Niemoller’s Quote and on the consequences of choosing to make a difference, or not.

An awards ceremony recognizing the winners will take place on Sunday, April 30, at HMTC. All students who submit an entry will receive a certificate of participation. Group entries will be considered as one entry and the award will go to the submitting school.

For questions or more information contact Tracy Garrison-Feinberg at 516-571-8040 or Guidelines for submissions can be found at
