CRC holds Israel poster contest

by | Feb 14, 2014 | What’s Happening

Deadline for submission: Friday, Feb. 28

The second annual Israel Poster Contest for first through 12th graders is now accepting entrees.

The Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater sponsors the contest.

Students and teachers can find a list of cool facts about Israel at

Each student should choose one fact from the list to serve as the poster’s theme. Posters are to be submitted on an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet of paper and be hand drawn (not computer generated) using only pencil, crayon, marker or—new this year—2-D collage. 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.

All posters will be displayed in the Simon Family JCC Cardo March 18 through April 1. The community will be asked to vote in person for their favorite. Finalists will then be posted online and the community will be asked to vote electronically during April for their favorite. During viewing and voting, the artists’ names will be hidden.

The winning poster will be announced on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, May 6 and will be professionally framed and hang permanently at the Sandler Family Campus. Attendees of the community Israel Festival on Sunday, May 18 will receive a copy of the winning poster.

Submissions must be received by 4:30 pm on Friday, Feb. 28 and may be delivered to the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater 5000 Corporate Woods Drive in Virginia Beach.
