In Memory of Jacob Friedman
Almost 900 students from 70 schools participated in this year's contest.
Students were asked to respond to question, "How does the Anne Frank Tree sapling (recently planted in Seattle), and what you have learned about the Holocaust, inspire you?"
Thank you to everyone who participiated!
