The sixtth Biggest Jewish News of the Week Contest is now under way. It began in The Bulletin’s week-end edition of Sunday, December 15, and will continue until Friday, December 20. Everybody is eligible to enter this simple, interesting and informative contest. Your reward for entering may be a share of the $100 in cash prizes that is awarded to the winners of this current news competition each week.

The first Biggest Jewish News of the Week Contest began six weeks ago on Sunday, November 10. It immediately caught the interest of The Bulletin readers and has been growing #n popularity with each succeeding contest. And, according to returns, with all precints accounted for, it rapidly became a favorite indoor sport of Bulletin readers and college and high school students.


Each Sunday a new contest begins. Each Sunday everybody becomes eligible to enter this letter-writing competition. Every Friday the winners of the preceding week’s contest are announced. Every Friday the winners of the Biggest Jewish News of the Week Contest are awarded $100 in prizes.

The sixth biggest news contest is now two days old, but it is still not too late to enter. The entry coupons which were published in Sunday and Monday’s editions of The Bulletin can be obtained at the offices of this publication, 221 Centre street, New York City.


Do you think the news items concerning the $2,500,000 loan the most important news since Sunday? Or do you think the attitude of the Zionists towards the Biro-Bidjan project more important? Perhaps more news items will appear in The Bulletin before Friday of this week which you will consider the biggest, the most important Jewish news of the week.

Readers, college and high school students who enter this contest can select any news item which they feel is the most important Jewish news. The next procedure is to write a letter of 250 words giving their reasons for the selection. That is all. Simple, isn’t it? A share in the $100 prize may be your reward.

Letters on the Fifth contest, which ended last Friday,### should have been mailed or brought to The Bulletin on or before midnight last night. All letters postmarked prior to midnight will receive full consideration. The winners in this contest will be announced on Friday.

Many readers who have entered this contest regularly and who have not as yet been awarded prizes should not give up hope. Four of the nine prize winners last week were old timers. They had entered the contest in its first week and only last Friday were announced as winners for the first time. Others have won twice. Remember, winners of previous contests are not barred from further competition. The contest that begins each week is an absolutely new one.

The letters are judged solely on merit by the judiciary board appointed by the editor. Its decisions are final.

Get into this contest today. You’ll like it. The Bulletin is sold on all newsstands in the city. Get your copy of the Jewish Daily Bulletin regularly.
