Thousands entered and ten finalists remain. Hear juniors and seniors from throughout Northeast Ohio read their essays as they compete for a grand scholarship prize of $40,000. Students were asked to compose an essay of 500 words or about:
- A time they witnessed an act of discrimination or hate toward themselves or someone else
- If they responded, why did they decide to stand up? How can they encourage their peers to do the same?
- If they didn’t respond, why not and what changes might they make to their behavior next time?
Also appearing this evening will be one of eight Cleveland Metropolitan School District schools chosen to participate in Stop the Hate: Youth Sing Out and the top three finalists in 6 – 10 grade who will be awarded cash prizes.
