Three Days Left to Enter First ‘big News’ Test

Download PDF for this date

Only three days remain before the first week of the Jewish Daily Bulletin’s “Biggest Jewish News of the Week” comes to a close. However, it is not too late to enter this news contest for a share in the $100 in cash prizes to be awarded the winners in this great current events competition each week.

When you have the six contest coupons (the fourth appears today and the sixth appears on Friday), published daily in the Jewish Daily Bulletin, write your letter to the contest editor telling what you think is the most important, the most significant, the biggest event of the week in Jewish affairs. Tell why you have chosen your selection in a letter of not more than 250 words. Enclose the coupons and be sure your letter is brought to the offices of the Jewish Daily Bulletin or mailed before midnight Monday, November 19.


Two cash awards of twenty-five dollars each will go to writers of the best letters in the student and non-student divisions. The student division includes all college and university men and women, while the non-student group is made up of the general reading public. Second and third prizes in these units will be awarded ten dollars and five dollars respectively.

High school students are in a class by themselves. For the best letter written by a student in high school a first prize of ten dollars and a gold medal will be awarded. Five dollars and a silver medal will go to the second prize winner while two dollars and a bronze medal will be the third prize.

Coupon number four appears in today’s Jewish Daily Bulletin. However, for those readers and students who are anxious to enter this “Biggest Jewish News of the Week” contest now, and who haven’t been able to secure copies of the Jewish Daily Bulletin in which the first three contest blanks appeared, back numbers may be obtained at the offices of this publication, 221 Center street.
