Afterwards, an introductory video about UPF was shown and a presentation about becoming an Ambassador of Peace was given by Dr. Nurit Hirschfeld, secretary general of UPF-Israel.

The Ambassador for Peace Awards were given by Dr. Balcomb and his wife, Mrs. Fumiko Balcomb, and Mr. Angelucci and his wife, Mrs. Marilyn Angelucci.
