- The Mountain States Regional Office of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is excited to re-introduce the student essay contest A Tribute to Moral Courage: Standing Up Against Injustice. Using the Holocaust as a backdrop, middle and high school students are encouraged to recognize those individuals throughout history who took a strong stand on a specific issue based on their personal beliefs or convictions, regardless of the danger or threat to their personal safety. Not only will students write about how that person’s moral courage has an impact on the world, but also and perhaps most importantly, how those actions have influenced their own lives today.
