Holocaust Remembrance Service of Northwest Louisiana

Literary Competition Guidelines

Students studying in Northwest Louisiana are encouraged to submit literary entries about the topics shown in the guidelines. Use the links below to find the specific guidelines that apply to you.

Middle School Guidelines

High School Guidelines


There are CASH prizes for winning entries in Middle School and all High School categories. Additionally, there are cash prizes awarded to teachers and schools (new)! For details, see the guidelines of the competition relevant to you.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines, that are submitted late, or that come from students outside the Northwest Louisiana area (Caddo, Bossier, Webster, and DeSoto parishes). Submissions will be retained by the Northwest Louisiana Jewish Federation, who will have the right to reprint winning entries in publications including local media/newspapers, or this website. Literary winners will be expected to attend the Holocaust Remembrance Service. Prizes are awarded at the discretion of the Shoah Committee. Some awards may not be given, depending on the number of entries received and evaluation of merit by the panel of judges.
