The Story of Adam Milstein
A good way to get people to show off their artistic skills along with wittiness and knowledge of current events is holding a competition. Adam Milstein is already way ahead of others on this.
Adam Milstein and his wife, both of whom created the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, have started their own competition for the best pro-Israel memes, and now they have begun accepting submissions. The Milstein Meme Competition gives people a chance to be creative and the prizes for the competition can total up to $2,000.
For those who may not know, memes are mainly images but also videos, websites or hashtags that are meant to be spread, sometimes virally across social media and the internet at large. Memes have become a big cultural centerpiece for younger people, specifically Generation Z and millennials alike. A “meme stash” will be made during the contest, ranging from classic memes like “Bad Luck Brian” to newer ones like the hotdog filter for Snapchat. All of which will be made for the purpose of drawing in pro-Israel activists.
When asked about the contest, Adam Milstein himself stated that it would be a fun way for people to express their love and support for Israel with a bit of wit added to it. He added that there would be a panel full of high school and college students, all of whom would be considered experts in the field of meme creation, calling them “authorities” on the subject.
Once the memes have been submitted, Adam Milstein has said that there will be a voting period where the participants can submit up to a total of five memes. Public voting will begin there and after the voting, the final winners will be chosen by a panel of six activists.
Speaking of the man himself, Adam Milstein is the co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, an organization that aims to provide charitable and philanthropic services to different organizations across the world that strengthen Jewish people and show their support for Israel. He is also a co-founder for the Israeli-American Council.
