JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen IAJGS International Jewish Genealogy Month and Poster Contest #general
As promised, here is more information about the IAJGS sponsored
International Jewish Genealogy Month and Poster Contest:
International Jewish Genealogy Month runs October 29 to November 26, 2011,
the Hebrew month of Cheshvan. IAJGS and the International Jewish Genealogy
Month Committee encourage you and your organization to publicize your
organization's programs and events in conjunction with this special month.
More information and support will be coming your way this summer to help you
publicize International Jewish Genealogy Month and support your association.
Right now, you can publicize the IAJGS International Jewish Genealogy Month
Annual Poster/Flyer Competition. All entries >from member organizations (JGS,
SIG, BOF, etc.) are due by June 15, 2011. Member organizations may submit
one or more entries. The entry creator is not required to be a member of the
member organization and there's no age requirement for the entry creator.
The artist creating the winning entry will receive free registration for the
2011 conference. In addition, both the winning artist and member
organization will be acknowledged on our web site, at the Washington DC
IAJGS Conference and via member digest emails. Here's your chance to reach
out to new potential members of all ages. (There's lots of talent in your
local high schools and colleges.) The winning design will be announced at
the August 2011 IAJGS International Conference and the winning entry
displayed publicly at the event for the first time.
