Leading up to BBYO International Convention (IC) 2015, Jewish teens around the world are invited to share their innovative ideas for how to engage more Jewish teens in Jewish life by submitting a video application.

Teens whose videos receive the most votes will be able to present their big idea to 150 of the Jewish community’s top philanthropists at the 24-hour Summit on Jewish Teens immediately preceding IC. This friendly competition will be to win seed funding up to $5,000 and mentoring to implement their idea.

Complete video contest instructions can be found here.

The Summit on Jewish Teens participants will explore topics such as leadership, community-building, Jewish learning, Israel and service, all in the context of what teens are thinking today, what their interests are, and what the possibilities are for their deeper involvement in Jewish life. Discussions will be facilitated by experts including former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks.
