The Jewish Theater for Children announced today that it is offering a prize of $1,000 for the best full length play for children in English on a Jewish theme. This is the tenth time in as many years that the Theater has offered a similar prize in its annual Golden Pen Playwriting Contest.

Funds for the prize are made available by Norma U. Levitt, a member of the Theater’s beard of directors. Prize-winning manuscripts are also given a professional production. Manuscripts for the 1965 competition must be submitted no later than May 15, 1966. Rules of the contest may be obtained by writing to the Jewish Theater for Children.
