"Firsts" for the Dean's Writing Award

The results are in from December's Dean's Writing Award. This month's submissions were amongst the best I've gotten yet and featured two new "firsts". It was the first time we received two full length essays written completely in Hebrew, as well as the first time we received a submission from Kindergarten! In fact, the competition was so stiff for the Judaic Studies category, that I had to give two awards instead of one. So... the winners of the December Dean's Writing Contest in the Judaic Studies category were David Finkelstein (our Kindergartner!) and Jake Baum. In the General Studies category, the winner was David Yehoshua Samuels.
