The Tourism Ministry and Channel 2 News are launching a “Seven Wonders of Israel” competition, in which the national and international public can vote for their seven favorite sites – natural or man-made – on the Channel 2 Facebook page, the ministry announced on Monday.

Through September 13, the public can make suggestions of their favorite sites on the page, after which a committee from the Tourism Ministry, Channel 2 News, tour guides and academics will select 15 finalists, according to the contest instructions.

From September 18 through the contest’s conclusion on September 22, the public can vote on the same page for the seven winners, which will then be announced by the minister on Channel 2’s Six with Oded Ben-Ami.

“The competition strengthens the links to Israel’s heritage, increases awareness of the wide range of historical, archeological, natural and religious sites in Israel, creating new marketing opportunities to expose these wonders to the rest of the world,” said Tourism Minister Stas Meseznikov in a statement. “I welcome Israelis and foreigners to take part in the competition, making suggestions and voting for their favorites.”
