Please attach a current head shot picture of yourself, and 1-3 photos of yourself engaged in the work you described.
Please share 2-3 ways in which the leadership role/s you describe above have helped humanity and/or helped to protect the earth.
Reflecting on your time as a student at CJDS, please describe one or more experiences you had at the school (could be an assignment, class unit/curriculum, inspiration from a teacher, club, or program, etc.) in which you recall your awareness of the importance of making a difference to humanity and/or the earth. (What was the experience, how did it make you feel and think, and how do you think it raised your awareness about Adam and/or HaAdamah?)
If received, towards which middle school, high school, or post-graduate program will you use the award? (please include a link to the program or school if possible)
What CJDS alumni events or programming would you like the school to organize for you and your class, and at what time of the year would that programming be most appealing?
If named the awardee, will you be available to attend the Award Presentation at CJDS on Thursday May 23, 2019, at CJDS Arts Night, 6:30-8pm? (Attendance is preferred but not mandatory).
If awarded, I grant permission to CJDS to publish and share publicly information and photos that I have shared within this application.
