Please pass on to any relevant people you know in the US or Canada(school kids, teachers, etc...)
and tell them you saw it here..

Nefesh B’Nefesh (www.nbn.org.il) is running a plane logo design competition for their summer Aliyah flights for 6th-8th graders. The contest - which is both fun and creative - is enabling students across North America to learn about Aliyah and the return to the Jewish homeland - a perfect "project" as we approach "Yom Haatzmaut". It is a great educational tool for both students and teachers to reconnect with the vibrant side of Israel as opposed to just learning about it in historical textbooks.

NBN is offering three free round trip tickets for the winner, parent and school rep which will allow the student artist to actually experience "homecoming" and internalize it as they sit on the plane bearing their design. As for the other competitors - the contest can serve as a wonderful educational tool surrounding the theme of Yom Haatzmaut - by initiating exhibitions of the various submissions within your school and enabling your teachers to get their students excited through the contest surrounding the concept of Aliyah and Israel.

The object of NBN's logo contest, entitled "Homeward Bound" is to create and design a logo for their “Summer 2005” chartered airplanes of Olim to Israel. The winning logo design, capturing & depicting the essence of ‘Aliyah & Homecoming’, will be painted on the body of one or more of the flights bringing hundreds of Olim from North America to Israel. The winning artist will be invited to accompany this special flight, joined by his/ her parent and/or school representative.
