ABU DHABI: With all entries for the Annual Environment Competition received from students across the country, the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi’s (EAD) panels of judges has completed assessing the best creative content.

As part of the celebration of the competition, EAD is showcasing over 300 entries at Abu Dhabi’s Mushrif Mall from April 24-30.

Some of the most creative work will be showcased at the mall including drawings and paintings from Kindergarten to Grade 1-3 using the subject matters “Our Friend, the Sun” and “UAE Animals in Danger” respectively as the designated topics.

Additionally, university students were requested to design Public Service Announcements (PSA) with “Reduce Carbon Emissions and Help Combat Climate Change” as their message.

Over 60 such PSAs will also be exhibited at Mushrif Mall.

Fozeya Ibrahim Al Mahmoud, director of environmental outreach division, EAD said, “The entries we’ve received this year demonstrate true creativity. It is clear to us that the youth across the UAE have been inspired to think about environmental issues and have a sense of how they impact us.”

A number of categories that are being judged by EAD’s panels are - short story writing for grades four-six, essay writing for grades seven-nine, an awareness campaign for grades seven-nine, a debate exercise for grades 10-12 and a research report for grades 10-12.For the short story writing category, students were asked to create a story on the theme of “The Day the Electricity Supply Shut Down and Everything Stopped Working”, while the essay writing category requested students to discuss “The Development of Renewable Energy Sources in the UAE.” Another category asked students to come up with an awareness campaign on the “Ways and Need to Be Energy Efficient.”

“With the senior students, we really wanted to challenge them, so while their work is not exhibited in the mall, the debate challenge was held in front of an expert judging panel and academic audience which allowed the participants to show their passion. The research report also demonstrated how analytical the students across the country can be and they really impressed us,” added Al Mahmoud.
