The Community Relations Council invited first through 12th graders of Tidewater to participate in an Israel Poster Contest in February. Students were asked to illustrate a cool fact about Israel in a hand-made, 8.5” x 11” poster.

More than 100 entries were on display in the Simon Family JCC Cardo on the Sandler Family Campus between March 18 and April 1. The community was asked to vote in person, and the top 10 vote-getters were selected as finalists.

Through April 30, voting on the posters is taking place at www.jewishva.org/israelpostervoting. (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 poster that receives the most online votes will be announced on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, May 6 at the 7 pm screening of The Prime Ministers documentary at the Sandler Family Campus. Details about that event can be found at www.jewishva.org/PrimeMinisters.

The winning poster will be professionally framed and hang permanently in the Sandler Family Campus and be distributed to attendees at the community Israel Festival on May 18.
