Fifth graders from the Ohr Torah - Kadima school won first place in the Israeli "Design for Change" competition, part of an international competition to implement social change in communities, that took place at the Israel Conservatory of Music in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

Some 300 students took part in the project, brought to Israel by the nonprofit organizations Birthday Angels, which runs programs to boost self-esteem for children, in collaboration with Ruach Tova ("Good Spirit"), part of the Ted Arison Family Foundation, an organization that promoting volunteering in Israel.

The winning team, that recruited local students, residents, youth groups, and the head of the local council to renovate the employment center for people with disabilities in the neighborhood, will represent Israel at the international conference to be held in Mexico this coming September.
