Award Winning CHW Nahalal Student!

Liran Markin is a CHW Nahalal student who recently won a bronze medal at the International Olympiad for Informatics (IOI.) The annual prestigious science competition is comprised of 80 countries that send delegates to participate in Russia.


Liran is an integral part of the Israeli team which is comprised of four competitors, and have been trained by Dr. David Ginat from Tel Aviv University.

This was Liran’s second time attending the IOI and representing Israel. Moreover, this is Liran’s second bronze medal!

Liran shares, “Prior to travelling to the competition in Russia, we saw Yarden Gerbi’s win and Or Sasson’s win [in the Rio Olympics.] It was very exciting! I think that our team has the same sense of pride, despite the obvious difference in competitions – we all represent Israel.”

CHW wishes to congratulate Liran and the Israeli team for their excellent efforts and so positively representing Israel!
