Hashim Qayaisia, head of the organising committee and director of the project, said at a Press conference in the capital that through the competition, seven students from the seven emirates would be chosen.

The aim is to provide students of secondary schools with an opportunity to come up with ideas to develop the Emirati society.

“The competition gives students the opportunity to learn from the book, My Vision... My Future, written by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,” said Qayaisia.

About 260 students from 39 schools will put forth their ideas during the competition.

Ian Fairservice, Managing Partner of Motivate Publishing, said, “Motivate Publishing has been privileged to publish Shaikh Mohammed’s book to capture the imagination of readers in our region and around the world.”

“The My Vision... My Future Project is a wonderful use of the book’s central themes of leadership and entrepreneurial spirit and we are proud to offer our support to this initiative,” he added.

The English edition of the book is expected to be released by June.
