Local students are finalists in Holocaust Art and Writing Contest

Submitted By Nicole Steward

Sonali Toppur and Sherry Xiao, both seniors at Mission San Jose High School (MSJH), are finalists in the Chapman University Holocaust Art and Writing Contest.

Each school that participated was invited to submit prose, poetry, works of art or a combination of three students. Toppur won for poetry, Xiao for art, and 10th grader Dillon Cho won a silver award for his essay.

The students, along with their teachers Katherine Geers and Jennifer Moore, have been invited to attend the awards ceremony in Los Angeles and meet Eli Wiesel and other Holocaust survivors in a roundtable discussion.

Both Toppur and Xiao have the opportunity to place in the final contest. The top two students in each category win cash prizes while the first place students in each category win a trip to Washington D.C. to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and other historic sites.
