Areyvut Announces Winners of the 2009 Bnai Mitzvah Video Essay Contest!

Posted on January 8, 2010

We received submissions from across the country and earlier this week the judges gathered together to watch the videos and it is my pleasure to announce the winners of this year’s contest.

Grand Prize Winner- Mitchell Abrams – New City, NY- “Kids Love Books”

Second Place Winner- Marcus Apter – West Hartford, CT- “Let’s Play Ball – For All”

Third Place Winner- Alex Harelick – White Plains, NY- “Alex Harelick’s Mitzvah Project”

Honorable Mention- David Broide – Hollywood, FL- “Never Again Never Forget” and Abby Stiefel – Teaneck, NJ- “Clowning Around for Chesed”

The contest has been an important part of Areyvut and has helped us raise awareness of the importance of Mitzvah projects, innovative projects and agencies. The winners (shout out to Cheli, Dennis, Sarita and Timor) have often become involved with Areyvut, attended programs where they speak and inspire others to get involved in their communities. Winning the contest also enables them to raise the profile of their project, the agency they benefited and to get others involved in their work.

Areyvut thanks the judges, congratulates our winners and thanks everyone who participated for making this contest such a success.
