Vernon Township High School recently held its 10th annual Tolerance Fair, student-researched and student-led mini-TED Talks presenting well-researched and often searing information to hundreds of their peers on topics ranging from multiple genocides to hotspots like North Korea and the Israeli/Palestinian conflicts, to water scarcity and cults in America.

The student presenters, who have studied these issues and others like them all year in their Literature of the Holocaust and Issues of Conscience classes, filled the upper and lower libraries with twenty-eight stations where, throughout the day, teachers brought their classes by for a thought-provoking exploration of issues that are so important.

The Tolerance Fair has become a school-wide effort, led by teachers Thom LoGiudice and John Loggie, to raise awareness about issues that have far-reaching human consequences, not only in our world history, but unfolding among peoples around the globe even today.
