The Interfaith Dialogue Center (IDC) is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Diversity Art & Essay Contest for students 9th to 12th grade in New Jersey. Students will be awarded more than $10,000. This year's theme is Who is My Neighbor? Visit the contest website for more information.

IDC's Art & Essay contest for middle school and high school students was held first time in 2010. We received over 750 entries from all over NJ. You can see last year's Award Ceremony and winners by visiting this link, and this link. You may watch the video of the award ceremony, just click here. There are important values that help keep societies afloat, with this in mind IDC has undertaken this important project. IDC organizes the DIVERSITY ART&ESSAY CONTEST to instill some of these values in our young and to give them a forum with various platforms in which they can express their understanding and analysis of these values. Contest will be held in two categories where students will be awarded generously. More information is available at our web site.
