I am pleased to submit to you the highlights of the decision to award the Moshe Schnabel Prize to the group of students who engaged in joint research regarding the oil spill in the Evrona Nature Reserve.
Three proposals were submitted to the committee, but its members felt that the basis for selection should be wider. Therefore, the committee actively sought out suitable projects. At the end of that process, the committee recommended awarding the prize to a group of 12 students who conducted joint research regarding the oil spill in the Evrona Nature Reserve. This project was clearly the most outstanding project.
The scope of the project and the recommendations are well described in the recommendation of Prof. Uri Shavit. The committee supported these recommendations unanimously.
The committee found that this project perfectly meets the spirit of the prize. It is a practical project addressing public, environmental and social aspects in Israel. The project emphasized values such as social involvement, curiosity, innovation, creativity, teamwork and excellence among the participating students. The project provided the students an important educational experience that contributed to the empowerment of those values that are the practical foundation for the perception of “Environmental Civil Engineer” with “multidisciplinary vision.”
In conclusion, the Committee has chosen this project as the project most eligible for the Moshe Schnabel Prize.
