We at The Roar are proud to announce our first photography contest! Submissions are open for all grades, 7-12. The theme of the contest is: “What makes you happy?” As we begin the dreaded stretch between February and March with little to no Jewish Holidays to break up the work,The Roar wants to take a moment to remind everyone about what makes us each happy. Your submission can be as simple as an artsy photo of your comfy bed, an adorable snap of your dog, or an extravagant piece composed of your dog on your comfy bed. The topic is completely up for interpretation. Be creative! Submissions are due onFebruary 10th, 2017. . Submissions will be open for people to vote on the following week, and the winner will be decided by the end of the day on Friday, February 17th.
