`We Are One' Winners

More than 200 youngsters entered the poster contest sponsored
by the Jewish Welfare Federation and The Jewish News

Contest judges had a difficult
time selecting the winning entries
in the poster competition marking
the 60th anniversary of the Jewish
Welfare Federation. Working
with the theme "We Are One .. .
Partners For Life: What Our
Jewish Community Means To
Me," entries were submitted from
Jewish schools and congregations
from throughout the Detroit met-
ropolitan area. The contest was
co-sponsored by Federation and
The Jewish News.
Crayon was the favorite
medium for the more than 200
youngsters who submitted posters
for the contests, but many creative
artists utilized stickers, yarn, rib-
bon and even candy to decorate
their entries. Sinai Hospital, Fed-
eration Apartments, Fresh Air
Society, the Jewish Community
Center and Hebrew Free Loan

were the local agencies which
were the subject of the majority of
the entries. Many youngsters
chose to work on the general
theme of tzedakah and sharing.
The winners and those receiv-
ing honorable mention were an-
nounced at last Sunday's Super
Sunday telethon benefitting the
Allied Jewish Campaign.

shouting the cheer "Go Jew!"
brought a lot of smiles to the
