Students from the ages of 5 to 16 from five Qatari schools are taking part in the Vodafone Qatar National Day creative arts competition, ‘Qatar National Day Through My Eyes'.

Organized by Al Johara, Vodafone’s Qatari Women’s Community Sales Team, the artistic competition rewards the creative skills of students as they design artwork that represents what Qatar National Day means for them. The five schools participating in the competition are Al Bayan School, Al Markhiya, Royal International School, Umm Salama and Arwa Bin Abdulmuttalib.

The Vodafone Qatar National Day creative arts competition aims to enhance feelings of national pride amongst the students, allowing them to express what Qatar National Day means to them through various forms of art.

“Vodafone enjoys being a part of the National Day celebrations and is proud to support the students as they demonstrate how they feel about Qatar and its heritage,” says Susie Kelt, Head of Al Johara.

Competition entries will be judged by distinguished art expert Eman Ghafan Al Basti, board member of the Qatar Business Women’s Federation, designer of souvenirs for His Highness The Emir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani and a professional artist since 1981. The best artwork from all five participating schools will be announced at successive school functions from the 15th to 19th December and prize winners awarded in the presence of parents, school administrators and art teachers.

“As Qatar celebrates National Day, Vodafone is proud to support activities which celebrate the country’s culture and heritage. Vodafone congratulates His Highness The Emir, His Highness The Heir Apparent and all the people of Qatar on this glorious occasion,” added Susie Kelt.
