ADL and the Houston Rockets Announce Winners of “Create with No Place for Hate® Challenge

  • May 13, 2022

Two Schools from Lamar Consolidated (Independent School District) ISD and two schools from the Fort Bend ISD are the winners of the “Create with No Place for Hate® Express Yourself Challenge.

As an extension of the No Place for Hate® program, the Houston Rockets and ADL teamed up to develop the challenge, a competition for No Place for Hate participating schools. The Challenge encouraged students to create a 2-3-minute video or submit a photo of their still art such as paintings, drawings, collages, or photography depicting the No Place for Hate® message of inclusivity, respect, and equity.

The still art winning submissions were “Make Them Smile” from Rita Drabek Elementary School in the Fort Bend ISD and “TLC (Trust Loyalty and Compassion) Rocks” from James Roberts Middle School in the Lamar Consolidated ISD.  The winning videos were entitled “Light the Fuse” from Jackson Elementary School in the Lamar Consolidated ISD and “#RocketsNoPlacefor Hate” from Fort Settlement Middle School in the Fort Bend ISD.

The winners were recognized with a suite at a Houston Rockets game in April, and all No Place for Hate Coordinators and students who submitted entries received tickets to a game.
