The PaJeS Pitch


Do you have a great project to improve your school? Are you brave enough to face a panel of judges who will invest in it? If so, now is your chance to enter the PaJeS Pitch......

To celebrate the 5th year of the Jewish Schools Awards, PaJeS are launching the PaJeS Pitch – a unique opportunity to win a substantial amount of money for a special project within a Jewish school. This fantastic prize is made possible by the generous support of the Genesis Philanthropy Group.

How does the PaJeS Pitch work?

PaJeS are looking for teams of up to 4 students from primary and secondary Jewish schools to come up with their best, brightest and most creative ideas to benefit their school. Teams will be asked to submit applications for their projects to PaJeS where a panel of expert judges will whittle the teams down to three finalists from primary and three finalists from secondary schools. The finalists will then pitch their plans to our dragons’ den style panel at the Jewish Schools Awards on 11th February 2020. The winners will be able to use the funding to implement their ideas within their schools.

This is a wonderful opportunity for schools to be able to subsidise an initiative and for the pupils to get involved and make a difference to their school.

What do we do next?

Students have to put together a plan based on the application guidelines. Click on the images below to view the guidelines. The application form is due on the 9th December 2019.


If your school would like to participate in the PaJes Pitch, please fill out the school participation form by the 8th November 2019. 

How can teachers promote PaJes Pitch at your school?

We have suggested different ways to incorporate the PaJeS Pitch in your school in the Teachers’ Guide. We have also put together a PaJeS Pitch flyer that you can use to publicise the scheme in your halls and newsletters.
