Student Assemblies Honor Essay Contest Winners

Museum to present banners to Parma, Glenville & Olmsted Falls schools

May 20, 2011 – It takes a village to raise a student scholarship winner! The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage will present a banner recognizing the achievement of faculty, students and the school community of the three scholarship-winning students in the 2011 “Stop the Hate: Youth Speak Out!” essay contest. “Most students who enter the contest hear about it at school. The banner is a way to remind the entire school community of their role in supporting student achievement and to encourage future winners” said contest organizer Lynda A. Bender, Director of Education & Programming at the Maltz Museum.
