CHANUKAH EDITION 5777
Creativity, color, content!
This year’s crop of entries was particularly interesting, with young artists using crayons, markers, water colors, tempera paints, fabrics, metallic materials, beads and many more inventive media — even twigs, berries and stones — to create their expression of Chanukah.
Entries came from many cities in Colorado: Denver, Aurora, Boulder, Centennial, Cherry Hills Village,
Colorado Springs, Englewood, Evergreen, Fort Collins, Greenwood Village, Longmont.
Entries came from as far as Simi Valley, California, and Monsey, New York!
All entries are numbered by an independent party and then judged blindly. The judges do not know the names, schools or synagogues of the entrants.
