Theme for 2022 Tolerance Week Written Word and Ella Holtzen Memorial Art Contest Announced.
Please give examples in words or art how we can live a more Tolerant life, improving our part of the world. Please limit essays to 400 words and artwork to 11×14″. Email entries to [email protected] or deliver to 1922 Pierce Street by 5 pm on Friday, April 22nd. Middle and high school students are eligible. There are cash prizes for one winning student and teacher in both the art and essay areas. The winners will be announced on our Facebook page, Tolerance Week, on our website, Toleranceweek.org, and in the Sioux City Journal. We have renamed the art contest in memory of Ella Holtzen, who was our 2016 Middle School Art Contest Winner. Tragically, Ella and her brother Beck, students at Hinton Community School, were killed in an ice-related car accident on January 14, 2020.
