The Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater invites local first through 12th graders to participate in its fifth annual Israel Poster Contest.
A list of “cool facts” about Israel is available at www.JewishVA.org/ CRCIsraelPosterContest. Contest rules are:
• Each student should choose one fact from the list to serve as his or her poster’s theme.
• The fact should be clearly stated on the FRONT of the poster.
• Poster should be submitted on an 8.5 inches by 11 inches paper and be hand drawn (not computer generated) using pencil, crayon, marker, or 2-D art.
• Names should not be visible on the front of the poster, but must be included along with age, grade, school, email address and phone number on the back.
Posters will be displayed in the Leon Family Art Gallery in February when the community will have the opportunity to vote in person for their favorite. Finalists will then be posted online and the community will be asked to vote again electronically in March for their favorite poster. During viewing and voting, the artists’ names will be hidden.
The poster with the most votes will be announced Monday, April 3. The winning poster will be professionally framed and permanently hang in the Sandler Family Campus. In addition, attendees at the Israel Festival on Sunday, April 30 will receive a copy of the winning poster.
Deadline: Monday, Feb. 13, 4:30 pm
Submissions may be dropped off at the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater office located on the second floor of the Sandler Family Campus, 5000 Corporate Woods Drive, Virginia Beach by Monday, Feb. 13 at 4:30 pm. For more information, visit www. JewishVA.org/CRCIsraelPosterContest.
