The Ministry of Education and Higher Education has announced the launch of the 13th edition of the Scientific Excellence Award. The ministry said application to participate in its various categories starts on October 1 and ends on October 31.

At a press conference yesterday, Dr Hamda Hassan al-Sulaiti, CEO, Scientific Excellence Award, said the award is an occasion to honour distinguished Qataris in various fields in order to spread the culture of creativity and excellence in the Qatari society.

Al-Sulaiti pointed out that three of the previous winners of the award will represent Qatar in an international scientific forum to be held later in Geneva to encourage them for their continued excellence.

The CEO touched on the various activities of the award, including organising introductory meetings for school administrators and co-ordinators and concerned ministries and institutions, holding a number of training workshops for the award categories and the organisation of its own documentation exhibition.

Mona al-Kuwari, executive vice-president, Scientific Excellence Award, explained that the organising committee has developed the awareness plan and held some educational meetings in the summer centres about the awards, in addition to involving parents in awareness programmes to encourage them to nominate their children to participate in the various categories of the awards, as well as the participation of teachers who have won the award before in a number of awareness events.
