Vote online through April 20
The Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s 4th annual Israel Poster Contest is now in its final days of voting.
For the contest, students in grades 1 through 12 illustrated a cool fact about Israel for a hand-made poster. (The list of cool facts students chose from may be viewed at www.jewishva.org/CRCIsraelPosterContest.)
More than 100 posters were displayed in the Simon Family JCC Cardo at the Sandler Family Campus in March. The top 10 vote recipients were selected as finalists.
Now through April 20, voting is taking place online at www.jewishva.org/CRCIsraelPosterVoting. (One vote per person per day.) This contest offers the entire community a chance to advocate for Israel by sharing these cool facts around the world. The winning poster will be announced on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, May 11, at the CRC and community partners’ Israel Today event with Matti Friedman (7:30pm at the Simon Family JCC, details can be found at www.jewishva.org/CRCIsraelToday).
The winning artist will see their poster professionally framed and hang permanently at the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus. Attendees of the community Israel Festival on Sunday, June 5 will receive a copy of the winning poster.
