yom-hashoah-award

TGA student Ciarra Fuerst has won first place in the Yom HaShoah Statewide Art, Writing and Video Contest for her poem, “Through the Childrens’ Eyes.” The contest honors the memory of those who perished and those who survived the Holocaust. The poem is  a dramatic, sweeping free verse work which explores the Holocaust from beginning to end through the voice of one child. The contest was sponsored by the El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center, and Miss Fuerst’s poem was chosen from over 200 entries. Ms. Fuerst was honored with a certificate of first place from the El Paso Holocaust Museum. The certificate was presented to her by Ms. Margaret McNutt, a member of the TGA faculty,  in a special ceremony in her honor at Torah Girls Academy. She will also receive a check for $100 from the museum. Mazel Tov, Ciarra!
