Facing History Together contests offer educators, students, and Facing History alumni the opportunity to tell stories, bring ideas to life, and build conversations about the issues that matter most - and share them across districts, states, and countries.

With each opportunity, we challenge participants to share experiences from inside and outside of the classroom, make connections between history and the moral choices we confront in today’s world, and think about the world in a new way.

The winning entries come in a variety of styles and media but all inspire you to envision a society free of racism, antisemitism, bullying, and hatred of all kinds.

Winning submissions for each opportunities are rewarded with prizes such as scholarships, grants, and awards of recognition.
