Prizes are awarded in each category (poetry, prose, and photography). Winning entries will receive cash prizes, certificates, and will be published in The American Jewish World, on this website, and on display for a period of time at the Sabes JCC.


Help Us Get The Word Out

We would be very grateful if you would display our contest poster and distribute our contest rules and submission form to teachers, administrators, or others in your organization who can get the word out to students about their opportunity to win cash prizes, certificates, and publication of their poetry, prose, or photography.

If you have a weekly e-newsletter, we would appreciate it if you would publish a brief description of our contest this Fall so that it can come to the attention of Jewish youth and their families.

We are proud to showcase and celebrate the creative work of teenagers in our Jewish community.
