Opportunity to USA and Canada individual students or groups of students to participate in a social-impact challenge with prizes totaling $10,000. Program participants will create projects that show that art has the ability to build strong, connected, and empathetic communities. The competition is open to students, ages 13-18, who will create and submit a video, write a poem, song, or blog, or produce a painting or piece of artwork that demonstrates the chosen medium’s potential to create a community that is stronger than hate.

Projects will be judged on creativity, connection to testimony, demonstration of the power of story, and the project's ability to generate social impact.

Before starting a project, students must complete the Stronger Than Hate interactive module. Entries must reference (including a clip or quote from) a testimony from the interactive module in their project.

After completing the module, students work individually or as a team (up to 4 members) to create their challenge submission. The submission can take multiple forms with the ultimate goal of connecting people, building empathy, and bringing community members together through the power of testimony and story.
