  • Scholarship Description
  • The Diverse Minds Writing Challenge is an education and awareness initiative created by B'nai B'rith International as one of its programs to promote tolerance and communicate a message of equality among all citizens, regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender or sexual orientation. Our goal is to destroy prejudices and strengthen the future of our youth through creativity, inspiration and education.

    This innovative scholarship competition asks high school students to write and illustrate a children's book that tells a story of tolerance, diversity or inclusion. Executed through public, private and charter high schools in select communities, the Challenge encourages teens to create innovative ways to teach tolerance to elementary-aged children, as well as encounter new insights into these issues for themselves.

    While this is not a comprehensive list, students can consider the following issues when choosing a topic for their books:

    -Bullying in schools
    -Children and adults with disabilities
    -Diverse families: LGBT parents; inter-generational, foster and single parent homes
    -Equal rights
    -Religious and cultural tolerance

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
