In early 2022, the prize was awarded to students from three institutions by Prime Minister Jean Castex and Ministers Elisabeth Moreno (Diversity and Equal Opportunities) and Jean-Michel Blanquer (National Education).
Initiatives for tolerance by students and teachers from the Toulouse-Lautrec College in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne), the Second Chance School in La Courneuve (Seine-Saint-Denis) and the Sévigné Vocational School in Gap (Hautes-Alps) were rewarded.
The grand prize winners, students of Gap Vocational High School, were congratulated for publishing a book dedicated to the history of their city and specifically to the righteous who hid Jews there to protect them from deportation during World War II.
The prime minister then welcomed this opportunity to “fight against forgetting but also to show hope” in the face of anti-Semitism.
The head of government also welcomed the students’ projects in his speech. “When I see you, I’m more determined than ever and full of hope,” he said.
He recalled the government’s commitment to combating hate and anti-Semitism, particularly online, and the hoped-for adoption of “texts to strengthen the fight against hate online” under the French Presidency of the European Union.
Previously, in early 2021, five interns from the La Bruyère high school in Sotteville-lès-Rouen (Seine-Maritime) were awarded for their communication campaign “Under the mask all the same”, a series of radio broadcasts and a multimedia campaign , carried out in their establishment.
