Eighteen participants from nine schools throughout Israel advanced to the finals of the KKL-JNF Zionism, Man and the Environment Quiz that took place in Jerusalem on May 27, 2013. First-place in the national quiz went to the Otzar Haim state-religious school from Beersheba. The quiz champions are students Misgav Kosef and Yisrael Naim of Beersheba. 


The KKL-JNF Zionism, Man and the Environment Quiz has a long tradition, which began in Jerusalem in 1934. Every year, the quiz takes place in two stages. The first stage is a regional quiz that takes place in three regions: north, south and central. Participants include fifth and sixth grade pupils from hundreds of schools, with each school sending two participants to the competition. From each region, three schools advance to the national quiz. KKL


This year, the Jerusalem municipality hosted the national KKL-JNF quiz in the City Council hall, in the presence of the mayor, Nir Barkat; the head of the municipality's Education Authority, Moshe Topaz; KKL-JNF Deputy Chairman who is also responsible for the KKL-JNF Education Portfolio, Mr. Gael Greenwald; the director of the KKL-JNF Education and Youth Division Dr. Bentzi Bar-Lavi; KKL-JNF personnel, family members, and classmates of the quiz participants, who excitedly waved signs to support their friends.


Aharon Bar, chairman of the judges committee and director of the Pedagogy Department of the KKL-JNF Education and Youth Division, noted that the students who participated in the final stage demonstrated an impressive knowledge and familiarity with the subjects. Students from the Otzar Haim state-religious school of Beersheba won first place by a large margin over the other finalists. The fight for second place was tight, but was eventually won by the Mevo'ot school from Be'er Tuvia, which had one point more that the Barkai School from Karnei Shomron, which reached third place.
