2) Yair Leolam is proud to present – Project SHINE 2.0 
 a Tikkun Olam Initiative

In this time of major disruption and uncertainty in our lives and the lives of your students,  Yair Leolam has decided to shift the focus of Project Shine 2.0. This year we have decided to create 3 separate contests that address the theme of “Finding the Good in Times of Crisis”. Each contest is open to two age groups, 6-8th and 9-12th graders. This is a great opportunity for your students to remotely engage in something designed to raise their spirits in addition to their important General and Judaic studies. 

Contest 1 - is an Art contest (drawing, painting etc.)

Contest 2 - is a Poetry contest (in english please)

Contest 3 - is a Video clip contest (2 minutes max)

As written above, the theme of each contest should be “Finding the Good in Times of Crisis".  Their submissions in Art, Poetry, or Video clip can include any modality they choose (i.e. comical, serious, thought-provoking, etc…), but most importantly, their creativity needs to convey the theme clearly.

Prizes will be awarded to both age groups:

1st place - $360 in Israel Bonds

2nd place - $180 in Israel Bonds

3rd place - $100 in Israel Bonds

Honorable mentions in each category will be publicized along with the prize winners.

The new deadline for submission is Tuesday, May 12, 2020 (L’ag Ba'omer). Only one submission per student among the three contests is allowed.

All submissions and questions should be sent to: projectshine@yairleolam.org with the name of the contest (Art, Poetry, Video) in the subject line. Please make sure they include their name, school,  grade and country in the body of the email as well as a short description under 500 words about their submission (e.g. what it’s about, why you chose it, etc.). 

3) Best Practices: Online Pedagogy from Harvard University

General advice for "a variety of course types, and additional tips on student engagement. We’ve broken up the teaching tips according to the common teaching styles (lecture, case, small group discussion, and hands-on). You may want to jump to the section that is most appropriate to your course."
