Israel posters are up: Time to vote

by | Feb 8, 2013 | Other News

Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 13 through Friday, March 1, community members can help a young artist become a big winner in the Israel Advocacy Poster Contest, sponsored by the Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.

Last month, the CRC invited local first through 12th graders to draw a poster highlighting a cool fact about Israel.

Now, it’s up to the public to decide which of the 100 submissions they think is best. Posters will be displayed in the Simon Family JCC Cardo beginning Feb. 13, when the CRC presents Neil Lazarus as its second speaker in the popular Israel Today Forum. The community gets two weeks to vote for its favorite posters, then those that get the most votes will be posted online for one more round of voting that spans the month of March.

The winning poster will be announced on April 16 at 7 pm, on the Sandler Family Campus, during the final Israel Today event featuring David Makovsky. The winning poster will be professionally framed and hang permanently at the Sandler Family Campus. In addition, attendees at the community’s Israel Festival on April 28 will receive a copy of the winning poster.
