The Spiegel Award recognizes students at three grade levels who have produced an exceptional piece of original writing, fiction or non-fiction, or an unusually expressive work of visual or performance art relating to human rights. The award was presented to Anna in recognition of the poem she wrote, “There’s Always Hope: A Jewish Girl’s Journey through a Concentration Camp.” Her poem was submitted by Debra Bishop, seventh-grade language arts and social studies teacher at OMS.
