Student Competition

Past competitions

Your students probably use their smartphones, tablets and new technologies all the time. Why not use this and ask them to create short films they love? This was the original idea behind our yearly student competitions. Since then, our competition’s framework evolved and students from European, Israeli and North American Jewish schools can participate, not only with video projects, but also with art projects.

In the framewok of the CJN student competition, students can create films in one of the three categories, Virtual Jewish Cookbook, Family History and My Community. Your students will not only learn how to research, work in a team, and edit a film – they will also have fun. Alternatively, for students who are full of creative ideas, love to draw, or express themselves through the language of art, can participate in the competition with an art piece. The competition can be the perfect opportunity to work together with your colleagues who teach art, and create something great together.
