Cain Day, of Denver, remembers when he learned about the Holocaust. He was eight. It wasn't from a teacher or from a book. It was at McDonald's. Years later, he wrote an essay about the experience. It just landed him the top prize in a national contest from the Holocaust Remembrance Project. It's a $7,500 scholarship. Day will be a freshman at the University of Denver next month. He reads part of his winning essay and talks more about why he wrote it.
