Winners of the “Celebrate #Canada150” art competition organized by Kuwait Times were honored at an awards night held at the Four Seasons Hotel on 20 November. The chief guest of the event was the Education Minister of Kuwait, Dr. Mohammed Al-Fares, who was accompanied by other dignitaries.

The Ambassador of Canada to Kuwait, Her Excellency Martine Moreau, welcomed the participants and guests to the closing awards ceremony of the competition. She shared that, “2017 has been a truly exceptional year for Canadian as we celebrate the 150 anniversary of our confederation as a country, or what is more commonly known as Canada150”.

Nearly 12,000 students from over 100 public and private schools participated in the art competition. Ambassador Moreau expressed her appreciation for the participants and praised their efforts and passion. “Such active interest and enthusiasm by the young students in learning more about Canada and in celebrating our 150 anniversary in this way, speaks volumes about the special friendship Canada enjoys with Kuwait, and this has been very gratifying indeed,” she said. 

The goal behind the competition was to make students reflect their feelings and knowledge about the landmarks and colors Canada enjoys in the form of beautiful nature and civilized heritage that is mixed with people’s customs and cultures, animals, bird, forests and the beauty of its coasts, cuisine and the scenes of celebrations.

For his part, the Deputy General Manager of Kuwait Times, Adnan Saad, expressed his gratitude to Ambassador Moreau for her support in making the event a success and applauded the students who shared their talents and said the competition allowed students to affirm their self-confidence and gave them the opportunity to express their reactions, abilities, artistic sense and feelings of awareness.

Kuwait Times thanked Kuwait Foreign Petrochemical Company (KUFPEC), Algonquin College of Kuwait, Petrochemical Industry, Ebla Computer consultancy, Air Canada, Lufthansa, SNC-Lavalin and Four Seasons Hotel for their participation and support.
