The contest seems easy enough, you propose an idea to civilize Israelis and you could win $60,000 cash. Unlike another recent, somewhat similar contest, there is no teaching commitment for the winner, nor do you have to leave your house to write about or implement your idea. It seems almost too good to be true. But, in a country with no lines, no driving rules, and strikes every other day, can it be done? Can Israelis change for the better? This is an unbelievable contest, and one that’s long overdue. Thank you, Ronny Maman, wealthy Israeli businessman, for creating this contest and I truly hope to see results in my lifetime. The website for submitting ideas seems to be only in Hebrew. Here’s what you need to know:
