Regional Convention allows teens to shine and make a difference.

he theme of this year's annual Michigan Region BBYO Regional Convention
(RC) was "HaTikvah — The Hope." From opening ceremonies featuring the
singing of "Hatikvah" (the Israeli national anthem) to the hope of 15 chap-
ters — seven AZA (boys) and eight BBG (girls) — attempting to be named the Most
Distinguished Chapter award, RC 2010 certainly was filled with hope.
RC was held from Sunday, Dec. 26, through Thursday, Dec. 30, at the Jewish
Community Center in West Bloomfield. The animal talent show competition was held
at nearby Temple Israel. The event drew 400 Jewish teens in grades 9-12 from Metro

Teens competed in events that ranged from sports to singing, cheers, fashion, oratory
and talent — all to earn the coveted Most Distinguished Chapter title. Winning chapters
were Evan Shapiro AZA (boys) and Dora Savage BBG (girls). The teen coordinators were
Ricky Levine and Rachel Berlin.
Teens raised more than $3,000 for various charities, including Kids Kicking Cancer
(the Regional Stand UP! organization this year), the communitywide 1 million penny
drive to raise money for burned forests in Israel and many more.
