Can I receive unemployment for not renewing contract work?

I opened an unemployment claim in April, and only received 3 weeks benefits prior to contracting with a small firm. My current contract with them is expired, and the new one they are offering makes no sense for me at all. I would like to re-open my original unemployment claim based on this. Will this work? I realize I am turning down work, but people on unemployment are not forced to take any job that's offered either.
