Israeli Award Ceremony 2017
The award ceremony for the Israeli 2017 competition took place on 28 November 2017 at the Tel Aviv University. The festive event was composed of two parts. The first part included a panel of four senior scholars who delivered lectures specifically designed for the winners and their families. The theme was "connected histories": the scholars discussed different points of connections between European history and Asian history. The second part of the event was the award ceremony itself, in which delegates of the organisations who contributed the awards handed the awards over to the winning students.
The Israeli history competition is organised by The Historical Society of Israel, which was founded in 1926 and is based in Jerusalem. It collaborates with the Zalman Shazar Center for Jewish History in programmes promoting education in Jewish History in Israel, including courses and an annual conference intended to bring the results of the latest historical research to wider audiences. Other partners of the project are also the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO), Dinur Center for Research in Jewish History, Dahan Center for Culture, Society and Education in the Sephardic Heritage and University of Haifa’s School of History.
