Winners of Campus Media Contest to Counter Rising Antisemitism at Colleges and Universities Announced
The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and CAMERA on Campus are proud to announce the winners of a campus media contest geared toward promoting the publication of op-eds countering the growing pervasiveness of antisemitic and anti-Israel narratives at colleges and universities worldwide.
The contest was launched this past fall with the “Exposing the Threat” online webinar, which featured a student panel discussion and a “Shark Tank”-style workshop led by Times of Israel Founding Editor David Horovitz.
Contest entries were reviewed by a selection committee, with participants receiving feedback before the articles were sent for publication.
The winning students and entries are:
– Sabrina Soffer (George Washington University): South Africa’s Chief Rabbi Eradicates the Myth, ‘Israel’s an Apartheid State’; GW Must Take Steps to Combat Antisemitism on Campus; Semites Are Here to Stay
– Alexandra Orbuch (Princeton University): Antisemitism: Back in Vogue?

– Saul Levene (King’s College London): PLO Ambassador Husam Zomlot Spreads Misinformation at Student Society Event

The winners received prizes of up to $350.

Founded in 1982, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) is an international media monitoring, research, and membership organization devoted to promoting accurate and balanced coverage of Israel and the Middle East. CAMERA fosters rigorous reporting while educating news consumers about Middle East issues and the role of the media. Because public opinion ultimately shapes public policy, distorted news coverage that misleads the public can be detrimental to sound policymaking. A non-partisan organization, CAMERA takes no position regarding any government’s political policies or ultimate solutions to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
