The ATT sponsors the Pogrund Family Judaic Artwork Contest for all of its grades  3-12 students of its affiliated schools. The goals of the contest are:

  • To encourage students to do research on a chag
  • To illustrate creatively and explain the relevance of that chag
  • To allow students the opportunity of strengthening their commitment to Judaism through creative expression
  • To encourage students to improve their communication skills in a different medium - art
  • To recognize and celebrate our students’ creativity
