Have you entered the Jewish Daily Bulletin’s “Biggest Jewish News of the Week” contest? Cash prizes totaling $100 are to be divided among the winners at the end of this week’s competition.

The contest is open to all college and high school students and to all readers of The Bulletin.

The plan is simple. The rules are easy. The prizes are waiting. Write a letter of not more than 250 words on what you think is the “Biggest Jewish News of the Week.” Tell why you think so. The contest for the first six days covers the week of November 11 to 18 inclusive. When you have written your letter, insert the six coupons which have appeared daily in The Bulletin this week and send it to the Contest Editor, 221 Centre street.

Whether you are sixteen or sixty you have a chance to win a share in the $100 in cash prizes to be awarded each week to writers of the best letters submitted by readers and students on the “Biggest Jewish News of the Week.”

High school and college students have special prizes to aim at. Students in high schools have an opportunity of winning ten dollars in cash and a gold medal for first prize, five dollars and a silver medal for second prize, and two dollars and a silver medal for third prize.

College men and women who read The Bulletin have the chance to earn twenty-five dollars for the best letter sent in by a college student. Second and third prizes are ten dollars and five dollars respectively.

For non-students the chances are the same as for college and university students. First prize for general readers of The Bulletin is twenty-five dollars. Ten dollars and five dollars in cash will be awarded to writers of the second and third best letters.

Copies of the Jewish Daily Bulletin are on sale at all newsstands. Back copies of the paper may be obtained by calling at the offices of this publication. Requests by mail for back numbers should be accompanied by three cents in stamps or coin for each copy desired. Further information on the “Biggest Jewish News of the Week” contest may be secured by calling CAnal 6-5363 and asking for the Contest Editor.
