WHITE ROSE SOCIETY ESSAY CONTEST
The Jewish Federation of Peoria is pleased to announce its annual White Rose Society Essay Contest, which coincides with the community’s Yom HaShoah (Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust) service. This contest is named in honor of the original White Rose Society, a group of university students in Munich, Germany, who united to call the German people to oppose Nazi oppression and inhumanity through an underground newspaper and leaflet campaign. The society, which chose the white rose as its symbol to represent purity in the face of evil, was originally inspired to speak out in opposition to Nazi eugenics and euthanasia programs.
The contest is open to 7th and 8th graders in Peoria County. For more information, please click here or please click here. The rubric sheet is found here. To register for the contest, please download this Registration Form.
