NPR Holiday Contest: Make a Menorah, Create an Ornament


Hey Crafters! Our own Carla Sinclair from CRAFT and Phil Torrone from MAKE are judges for a fun DIY contest @ NPR. Here’s the scoop:

“Make a timely ornament (or a menorah, for the Jews!). NPR’s First Ever Holiday Craft Contest. Design either a handmade menorah or a Christmas tree ornament. We are looking for designs that reflect the news of 2006. We also welcome quirky, funny and/or offbeat designs.”Link.

What do you win? Swag from the NPR Shop: The Hanukkah Lights Gift Set for the menorah winner; an NPR Jazz Christmas Collection with Marian McPartland for the ornament winner.

How to do you enter? Post your creation on with the keyword: NPRHOLIDAYCONTEST. Be sure to include a short artist’s statement and a way we can contact you. If you have any questions, please email

It would be great to see one our makers and crafters win!
