The challenge questions for The Echo Foundation’s 2007 A Decade Inspired by Elie Wiesel Art & Writing Contest were:

Essay & Poetry Challenge Question:

By writing “Night,” the definitive account of the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel took action to ensure that the inhumanity perpetrated against millions never be forgotten. In your life today, how are you responsible for the quality of human life in your own community and elsewhere? What actions can you, a young person, take to fight injustice here and around the world? Why does it matter?

Art & Photography Challenge Question:

Elie Wiesel’s memoir, NIGHT has sold over six million copies. Suppose, at the time of the next printing, Hill and Wang offered you the opportunity to redesign the cover of this definitive account of the Holocaust. Create with photography or two-dimensional art, a visual image whose power and authenticity do justice to this remarkable volume, the history within, and to the author who lived it.
