ARNOLD, Md. — Madeleine Stern is a junior at Broadneck High School in Arnold. She entered a video contest put on by B'nai B'rith and Combat Antisemitism Movement.

This contest challenged every high schooler in the world and Stern's message was so strong that she won this international award.

"I have face antisemitism, even my sister," said Stern.

She knew her sister, but she needed to find others who faced it as well, so she used Instagram to find them.

Her award winning video is less than 3 minutes long, but it will stay with her forever.

"I'm very proud of the award and even when I look back at 90 I'll say 'Wow, I did that,'" replied Stern.
