And the winner is…
The results are in for Hey Yiddle Diddle Production’s first ever contest to “Name Our Chanukah Mascot!”. Winners were chosen based on originality, creativity, and in some instances the ability to distinguish themselves from other similar submissions. The winning name was selected based on applicability of the name to this particular character, and not to dreidels in general.
And with that we would like to invite all of you to:
The winning entry, “DZ”, was submitted by Tamar Wisemon of Bet Shemesh, Israel. Tamar will receive Hey Yiddle Diddle’s “Freezin’ My Tuchus Off” sweatshirt. Congratulations!
There were many creative entries submitted from all over the world. Runners-up will receive a free copy of A Yearly Shpritz of Jewish Bits: The Ultimate Calendar of Jewish Humor (Old & New), and their submissions will be featured as names for upcoming HYDP Chanukah mascots to be introduced next year. And here is the list of honorable mentions and the names of those who submitted them:
“Jimmy Gimmel” - William Levin
“Tzvi Von” - Joanna Kristall
“Dr. Drei Dell” - Goldie Ellman
“Izzy Dreidelstein” - Eli Newman
“Chai Roller” - Lizzy Schmutter
“NaGaHaSha” - Laura Berger
Thanks again to everyone who participated. Stay ‘tooned for the next “Name Our Mascot, Win Some Stuff” contest…for Purim! And happy Chanukah! =0)
