The winners of the “Students Speak Out Against Anti-Semitism. A Creative Video Production Contest” were honored last month at a virtual awards ceremony hosted by the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) and B’nai B’rith International, the co-sponsors of the competition.

The goal of the contest was to raise public awareness of anti-Semitism by means of short educational videos produced by high school and undergraduate university students.

The prize-winning videos were chosen for their originality and potential impact.

The winners received financial grants to aid their efforts to fight anti-Semitism.

The videos can be viewed below:

Madeleine Stern of Broadneck High School in Annapolis, Maryland – “Anti-Semitism is Everywhere – Stop the Hate”

Diego Israel Rivera Berumen of Colegio Libre de Estudios Superiores (CLEU) in Guadalajara, Mexico – “Peace Will Thrive”

Porter Christensen of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah – “Universal Acceptance”

European Commission Coordinator on Combating Antisemitism Katharina von Schnurbein delivered opening remarks at the awards ceremony.

The winners were also addressed by CAM Senior Advisor Brig. Gen. (Res.) Sima Vaknin-Gil and B’nai B’rith International President Charles O. Kaufman.
