West students win Holocaust Resource Center Arts and Writing Contest

West Senior freshmen Chloe Mazurkiewicz and Anna Donovan won second and third prizes in the ninth grade division of the Holocaust Resource Center of Buffalo's annual Arts and Writing Contest.

The students read "Night" and researched an additional survivor's testimony in Jennifer Schubring's English class at West Senior before writing their pieces on the theme "Never Forget: Who Will Tell Our Stories When We Are Gone?"

In total, 125 writing entries from 15 middle and high schools across six Western New York counties were submitted. Contest winners attended a virtual ceremony June 3 and received monetary awards.
