HE Abdullah Hamdan bin Dalmook congratulated the winning students and their respective schools. He said: “The short story competition is one of the most important activities of HHC’s Research and Studies Department. This competition, which has been receiving strong participation from schools and students since its launch, has shown great success in the past three years. 
 
“Through this competition, we look forward to contributing to the role of the Center in line with the vision of our government to develop young talents in reading and writing and to train a well-informed and capable generation.” 
 
He added: “The stories presented in this competition reveal a high level of cultural understanding and deep expression of heritage from the young participants.  The competition has many advantages, the most important of which is that it is an open competition for all Arab nationalities.”
