JNF UK has announced the winners of its national mask competition. Nearly 1000 pupils from 14 different Jewish schools submitted mask designs, with entries arriving from London, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.
Winners were chosen from three different age groups, and are as follows –
Ages 3-5: Monty Stateman (3) from Brodetsky Primary School, Leeds.
Ages 6-8: Keitlin Bambans (7) from Mathilda Marks-Kennedy School, London.
Ages 9-11: Eden (10) from Etz Chaim, London.
All three designs will now be manufactured and distributed to children supported through JNF UK projects in Israel’s peripheral regions.
Charles Lossos, CEO of JNF UK, commented:
“Hundreds of pupils from across the UK put pen, pencil, paint and crayon to paper and joined in our competition, and I want to thank every single one of them. There were so many creative designs it was almost impossible to pick the winners, but we’re delighted with the three who have been chosen. We can’t wait to see them being worn in Israel!”
