Teachers: Tell Us Why Your Class Should Visit the Museum, and We’ll Pay for the Bus for One Lucky School!
Today, scientists believe all human beings are part of one race, the human race. At Holocaust Museum Houston, our exhibitions explore history and the choices of The Human Race during and since the Holocaust. Our Museum was created to remember and memorialize the Holocaust, and we work to stop hate to create a better society, one of upstanders rather than bystanders.
Tell us why your school would benefit from learning about the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy and the importance of respecting cultural diversity, and we'll pay for transportation for one school to visit the Museum in the fall.
The winning school will receive reimbursement for up to $300 in transportation costs.
While at the Museum, students will receive a guided tour of our permanent exhibition "Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers," and our changing exhibit "The Impact of Racist Ideologies: Jim Crow and the Nuremberg Laws."
School tours are designed to meet the needs of students in grades six through college and take about two hours. Specific tours also can be designated for younger students. The winning tour may be scheduled any weekday prior to Aug. 19, 2012 (subject to scheduling availability).
1. ) E-mail the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your name, school name, phone number and email address
- A 200-word essay on how your school would benefit from the chance to attend and tour the Museum.
2. ) After you have e-mailed your essay, post it on the Museum’s Facebook page with the heading “Stop Hate. Starting Here: The Human Race”.
The deadline to enter is Feb. 15, 2012, and the winner will be announced on Facebook.
