Campus Pitch Initiative
The Consulate General of Israel in New York and the World Jewish Congress invite university students in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Delaware to pitch their idea for a campus event, strategy or initiative that takes a new approach to Israel, antisemitism or intercommunity/faith relations. All students that submit their proposal will be automatically entered for a ticket to the Consulate's annual Yom Haatzmaut Gala at Chelsea Piers.
Following the proposal stage, the top 10 students will be selected for interviews at the World Jewish Congress. The final 5 proposals chosen will pitch in-person to a panel of entrepreneurs, CEOs and global Jewish leaders in February, 2017.
