A total of 137 participants out of 534 won the award from all UAE government and private schools in the seven categories of the award — student, teacher, social worker, inspector, school, project and family. The move came during a Press conference held at Al Theqa Club with the attendance of the Board of Trustees of Sharjah Award, and a large number of educationists.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Sharjah Award for Educational Excellence, Dr Muhammad Abdullah Al Mahmoud, pointed out that the Sharjah Award encourages distinguished people in the field of education. The Sharjah Award, he added, gives them a hand, praising the efforts they exerted to enhance themselves and the education sector under the patronage of His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah.

Dr Sultan Al Qasimi is keen on including all the education zones in the country in such an award after it was restricted to Sharjah schools only, he demonstrated.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Sharjah Award Dr Muhammad Al Mahmoud added that the Arbitration Committee exerted great efforts to select the winners under accurate standards without flattery to one education zone over another. The board of trustees of the Sharjah Award announced the winners’ names. The Dubai Education Zone came first with 32 winners of all categories, followed by the Abu Dhabi Education Zone, which came second with 28 winners.
