Congratulations To Jess Meirovici, Winner Of The 2012 CFHU Photo Contest
Jess Meirovici received a new iPad from the CFHU National offices in Toronto for her winning submission to the 2012 CFHU Photo Contest. She was a student at Rothberg International School in 2011 when she took the winning picture below at the bottom of the page, and here is how she describes it:
"I remember it being a hot day, the Israel sun was beaming down on our faces, and we were having the time of our lives just as the sun was setting on the horizon. It felt as if time had stood still in that moment. This photograph was taken at the Jaffa Port. It was the perfect moment, one we will never forget. I stood there and couldn’t believe where I was and that I had the privilege to be a Hebrew U student. I made it to Israel! A dream come true! Knowing that I would be in Jerusalem for a whole year was simply unbelievable. I wish to return one day to roam the halls of the Rothberg building and beautiful Hebrew University campus. Hopefully sometime soon. I can’t believe my journey has come to an end, but what a journey it has been. NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM?!"
The photo below is the winning photo by Jess Meirovici of Montreal. Continue scrolling down for the runner-up and a link to the gallery of top submissions.
