Two high school students from Australia, whose song came in second in the international competition to produce a music video in honor of KKL-JNF's 110th anniversary, came to Israel for a week to get to know Israel better and to find out more about KKL-JNF's work. Many of the projects they visited all over Israel have been executed thanks to contributions from friends of KKL-JNF in Australia, and many of them focus on caring for the environment.


Out of sixty video clips submitted, the one produced by Jake Fehily and Max Korman, 10th grade students from the Bialik High School in Melbourne, was remarkable in its talent, creativity and humor. The two boys surprised everyone by composing and performing a rap song in honor of KKL-JNF, which included the following lines:


Don't mess around
Don't be a fool
Just take my advice
Planting is cool


“When we entered the contest, we didn’t think we would win, but here we are in Israel,” said Jake. “We were in shock when we heard that we came in second and won a cash prize and a trip to Israel.” (The school that came first was the Maagalim School in the Sdot Negev Regional Council).
