In a contest designed to make spirits soar, students in Grades 4 – 7 are invited to create a logo for one of Nefesh B’Nefesh’s Aliyah planes. One Grand Prize winner will be selected to have his/her design reproduced on a Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah plane and will receive roundtrip airfare and accommodations for two to Israel for a 4 day/3 night trip in the summer of 2009. This winner will also have his/her work posted on BabagaNewz.com and announced on www.nbn.org.il/contest. Three runners up will also have their artwork published and each will receive a gift pack from BabagaNewz.com.
The contest is currently underway and ends at 5:00 p.m. Monday, February 5th, 2009, and is open to students in the United States and Canada, except where prohibited. Complete rules and the official entry form (to be signed by parents) may be downloaded at BabagaNewz.com/
BabagaNewz.com, an educational website for Jewish middle-schoolers and teachers, is teaming up with Nefesh B’Nefesh, the organization that is revitalizing Aliyah (immigration to Israel) from North America and the United Kingdom.
All entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges whose decisions are final. No purchase is necessary. Schools are encouraged to submit groups of individual entries, one per person.
Says BabagaNewz.com Web Editor Sara Marx, “The BabagaNewz team is very excited to engage Jewish students from across the country and get them to express their connection to Israel in a creative way. We are happy to be working with Nefesh B'Nefesh to offer this contest and are excited to see what students come up with.”
Yael Katsman of Nefesh B’Nefesh, agrees: “We’re always amazed at the creativity that comes from young people when they think and dream about Israel. By collaborating withBabagaNewz, we’re not only creating awareness about Israel and the concept of Aliyah, but we will benefit from the education and insight that BabagaNewz teachers can bring to the subject
