GTJ idea competition

Gather the Jews invites you to participate in its first ever IDEA COMPETITION.


The competition prompt is simple:  Improve Gather the Jews.


Gather the Jews aims to facilitate Judaism as an event aggregator, news service, and social rallying point for young professional Jews in DC.

We’ve had some success in doing this.  Over 2,000 young professional DC Jews subscribe to our weekly newsletter, and our website receives 3,000 visitors per week.

But we want to keep growing and improving.  And that’s why we’re asking for your help.


What you must do to compete:

To help us, please submit an idea for how GTJ can improve.  Your entry should be fewer than 200 words and must be submitted by Wednesday, September 7 at 11:59 PM EST.   You can submit as many ideas as you like.


The prize:

The winning idea will receive $100.  The second and third best ideas will get $50 each.


The judging process:

All ideas will be reviewed by a committee of GTJ staff members.  Ideas will be judged based on:

1)      Their ability to improve GTJ
2)      Their ability to help the Jewish DC community
3)      The ease with which they can implemented
4)      The cost (lower the better) with which they can be implemented


The GTJ committee will select the best five ideas by September 21.

These five ideas will then be posted on the GTJ website and GTJ viewers will be given one week to vote on their favorite idea.  Final standings will be determined based on number of votes.
