The Creative Writing Contest is a great chance for students to express their creativity, imagination, and love of writing. It is sponsored by the Samuel J. and Jean Sable Education Fund and is held at the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto.
All children studying in a day or part time Jewish school affiliated with The Julia & Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education are eligible. All entries must be original work.
Students’ work may be in the form of prose, poetry, play, fiction or non-fiction. Students should avoid summaries of historical or biographical information. Please limit all entries to four pages.
Teachers may submit the top 5 entries from their class no later than Friday, February 23rd, 2018
All winning submissions will be published in a Creative Writing Booklet which is distributed to participants and families at the Awards Ceremony. This year’s Awards Ceremony will take place Sunday, June 17th, 2018 at 10:30am at the Lipa Green Centre Tamari Family Hall, 4600 Bathurst Street.
Children interested in submitting work should speak directly to their Hebrew or Day School teachers. Only teachers are able to enter submissions for this contest.

Once the entries are received by the CJE, they will be reviewed by a panel of judges. Judging is based on caliber of content, clarity of thought, creativity, originality, and style of writing. The decisions of the judges are final.
