Boulder BBYO Rocks Convention

The Flobots weren’t the only ones rocking at the Rocky Mountain Region 2009 Winter Convention.

Boulder BBYO scored four awards this year. N’Siah of the Year went to Riki Gross (Chapter President), and Jon Ansell won Mazkir of the Year (Chapter Secretary).  Boulder’s chapter also won Most Improved Chapter, with ten members attending convention, and the girls of Boulder won Most Spirited Chapter, earning them the BBG Spirit Cup.

Boulder’s theme this year was Harry Potter, and we showed our stuff with shirts reading “Potter is Hotter” and an artistic banner featuring our mascots.

Highlights of the convention were the Flobots concert (of course),  “Lives” speeches finishing early, Storytelling with the prompts “I knew I was an AZA when…” and “One time at Jewish summer camp…”, AZA 6’s dance video, and of course a Kiss-o-Gram between Josh Siegel and Emily Frank.

Originally two separate chapters, Ilan Ramon 380 and Ahavah 331, the Boulder chapter did a great job at convention this year. Congrats to everyone!

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
