The Israel Prize in knowledge of Israel, Geography and Archeology will not be awarded this year, as the prize committee decided to nominate two recipients for the award, contrary to the rules of the Israel Prize, which state that there can only be one winner in each category.

The decision was made by Education Minister Shai Piron and his predecessor Gideon Sa’ar, despite the committee’s recommendation.
