The ceremony honoring the youth of Be'er-Sheva for 2018 was held last week (Tuesday, 29/05) at City Hall. The exciting event awarded the honor to 16 youth. The "Yakir Hanoar" award is an educational project shared by the Municipality of Be'er-Sheva, "Kivunim," the Youth Administration of the Ministry of Education, and the Municipal Youth Council, together with the student councils of high schools in the city.
The project reveals the achievements of the individual, in connection with the community in which he/she grew up, was educated, and lived. Educational teams can encourage young people to embark on a fascinating journey in wake of those who contribute to the community. As part of the journey, the youth meet those who are creative forces in the fields of spirit, science, art, education, environment, society and more. Thanks to the ceremony, youth are inspired to grow and develop their attachment to their home community, and their willingness to be socially involved and influence the shaping of the city.
This year, 15 high schools participated in the project. The prize committee selected 16 of its members, out of all the candidates. The committee that selected the honored youth faced criteria: pioneering action, a symbol, an example for the masses, and activity for the city's youth.
Those selected include Zachary Fishelevich - Makif Alef, Shaul Dolev - Makif Gimel, Avi Guy - Makif Vav, Shlomi Zimriong and Meir Laor - Makif Zion, Aliza Ben Abu Makif Rabin, Svetlana Robchinsky - Makif Rager, Zehava Fahima - Makif Tuviyahu, Kobi Sela - Gymnasia, Rabbi Shlomo Binyamin - Makif Amit, Fanny Malka - Amit Technological, Chana Yantov - Ulpanat Amit, Gabriela Cohen - Ulpanat Chen Bamidbar, Ilana Mor Yosef - Technological High School, Aharon Saada - Yeshivat Amit, Mazal Sadon - Bnei Akiva Yeshiva.
