The annual Alon prize for pioneering work has been awarded collectively to Israel's pre-military academies on Tuesday at a ceremony at the Palmach Museaum in Tel Aviv.

The prize is awarded each year by the Agudat Dor Palmach (Palmach Generation Association) in memory of former IDF general and Palmah commander Yigal Alon, who died in 1982.

The award was accepted by Rabbi Eli Sadan, of the Bnei David Eli Military Yeshiva of Israel, and Zeevik Nativ, head of the Nachshon pre-military academy on behalf of all academies.

The ceremony was attended by Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
