DUBAI: The Zayed Painting Contest aims to strengthen the objectives of The Year of Zayed foundation. Today, the values of the late inspirational world leader, whose aim was to educate and create greater awareness, are being relived through The Year of Zayed. 2018 is a definite highlight in the UAE’s history and with the launch of the painting contest, the life, legacy and values of the Late Sheikh Zayed will continue to make an impression on the country’s students.

To mark 100 years since the birth of the country’s Founding Father, the competition aims to gather participants from 100 schools all over the country. These include 50 schools in Dubai, 20 in Abu Dhabi, 10 in Sharjah, five schools each from Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ajman.

The competition is being supported by Emirates Global Aluminum along with Union Coop as Platinum Sponsor. More organisations will soon come on board to support this initiative.
