The AJW is a bi-weekly newspaper based in St. Louis Park, Minn. Hoffman's illustration was chosen from among 66 contributions to the contest.

As has been the case in the recent past, the winning artwork reflects the omnipresence of digital technology. "My mom and brothers have iPods," Hoffman said, regarding her technology theme. In her rendering, the popular Apple iPad has become a "Chai-Pad," with Hanuka symbols, and apps for Hanuka music and the game "Angry Assyrians," among other options. The word "chai" is a Hebrew word that means "life."
