This contest, in addition to the weekly MyLife broacasts are breathing life into Chassidus and Lubavitch. We are so lucky to have elders in our community who want to inspire and empower us. Yasher Koach!

We encourage everyone to write an essay, and give this contest a try!

In Judging the essays, grammar and composition are actually given less weight than other aspects of the contest (obviously the Essay must be coherent).

We saw such a diversity in the age and expertise of last year’s finalists, so we would like to assure you that everyone has a chance at wining!

In addition, we do accept submissions in Yiddish and Hebrew!

I hope that this addresses your concerns!

This is clearly an essay contest.

If it was an art competition, would you also say “anyone who can’t draw, don’t bother trying no matter how much chassidus you know”?

If you can’t write, why would you think to enter an essay contest?
Chassidus can mean just as much to you as it does to any writer or artist. (if that is your concern.)

You don’t need to express it for it to be real.

anyone who doesnt know elaborate english
