“The e-Quiz competition has encouraged children not only to use the internet for learning and researching answers to quiz questions, but also to read widely - something more and more people tend to neglect,” said Jamshed Mehdi, CEO of Dubaiquiz.com.

Dubaiquiz.com is the quizzing division of Mind Direct FZ LLC.

“Siemens Mobile e-Quiz provides fuel for inquisitive minds, whilst making learning more interactive and fun,” comments Shahzad Ahmed, Regional Marketing Director Siemens Mobile ME and Africa.

“Our aim is to be a part of our consumers' daily life, and especially on different levels. The e-Quiz is an important tool available to all, and Siemens Mobile wants to be part of it,” he added.

The colourful Siemens e-Quiz book is now available in schools, bookshops and malls at an affordable price of Dh10.

Each book has a serial number allowing the book owner to log on to Dubaiquiz.com and enter the competition which begins on January 2 and concludes on January 20. Quiz participants from the age of eight to 18, can win instant prizes in the online competition and if they win the initial rounds, they will be eligible to join the offline finals.

The offline finals will be conducted by Wiz Abbas, the e-Quiz master, in January, 2005.

A total of Dh200,000 in prizes could be won in both the online and offline quiz competition.

Uma Harikumar, Mother of Akshay Harikumar winner of last years' e-Quiz, said, “This event is a wonderful concept for all kids. Children these days are so distracted, and dubaiquiz is doing a brilliant job in steering their minds towards such an educational and productive initiative. I look forward to all their future events.”

E-Quiz Book of Knowledge Volume 4 is full of challenging quiz questions on general knowledge encouraging one to enter the online quiz eliminations on Dubaiquiz.com.

This year's Book of Knowledge has 132 pages, 20 pages more than last year's edition and has quiz questions in five categories: Toons and Tunes, Sports and Games, Home and School, People and Places, and Pix and Flicks.

An exciting book launch will be held at a fun day scheduled for September 2 in Adventureland, Sahara Centre, Sharjah. There will be fun activities and games every two hours from 12.00 noon to 8.00pm.
