WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Nine-year-old Daniel Obeler made a $5,000 donation to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Monday, money he won in an art contest sponsored by Northwest Airlines. Contest rules stipulated that the money be donated to charity, and the Chicago boy gave the money to the Washington museum -- saying that he wanted it to create new exhibits to help children learn about the Holocaust.
