Students Art Competition ‘KUWAIT
BEAUTIFUL AND GREEN’
Under the Patronage of His Excellency
Sheikh Salman Sabah Al Salem Al Hmoud Al Sabah Minister of Information and Minister of Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman will attend the closing ceremony of Students Art Competition
he student environment art competition is held under the sponsorship of Chevron, Zain and Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa. Adnan Saad, Kuwait Times Marketing Director and organizer of the competition said that the competition aimed to give students a chance to learn more about the nature of Kuwait. The competition was held for the first time in 1994. More than 80 schools representing almost 8,000 students participated in the competition this year. Such competitions are a lot more than great prizes and having fun; they allow participants to learn, show their skills, compare their results and share their talents with others. Art is the melody of life, the reflection of society and an important element for academic success. A drawing competition such as this is another avenue where our primary school participants can express their creativity outside of
the classroom. Through their drawings, our young participants are given opportunities to think out-of-the-box, exercise their imagination, and translate creative ideas into paper. Saad added, “I also see this competition as another platform for like-minded youths who are interested in art to mingle and share ideas. Their coming together generates synergy and dynamism, and can spur them to achieve greater peaks of excellence.” The process of selecting outstanding works of art out of nearly 8,000 participants was not an easy one. The selection will be eventually made by the judging panel, to whom we express deep gratitude for their decisions that were based on artistic and creative principles. “In my opinion, everyone is a winner because they let out honest expression of a beautiful and green Kuwait,” Saad concluded.
