Stop The Hate Essay Contest
Three Rocky River Middle School students are finalists in the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Stop the Hate Essay Contest.

Finalists will be recognized April 29 at The Stop the Hate Awards Ceremony at The Cleveland Art Museum, where one student from each grade level (6-10) will receive the $400 first prize.

RRMS finalists are sixth-grade students Flannery Costello and Isabella Kovacs, and eighth-grade student Elana Rouse.

Stop the Hate Youth Speak Out celebrates students committed to creating a more accepting, inclusive society. Each year, the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage gives out $100,000 in scholarships, awards and anti-bias education in recognition of students in grades 6-12 in Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Trumbull and Wayne counties.

The essay gives students the opportunity to consider their role in effecting change and offers a platform to share their ideas for creating a more inclusive world.
