Thank you to everyone who entered the #iAppreciate World Teachers’ Day Instagram competition. We loved hearing your stories and were really impressed by the thought and effort you put into making your videos.
Of course, your videos are about your teachers, but they are also about all teachers. We hope that teachers from across Dubai and the rest of the world are able to watch these and feel how grateful their students are for the great work they do to improve lives and society.
Qais Sedki, who won the 2010 Sheikh Zayed Book Award for Children's Literature for his Arabic-language manga series Gold Ring, judged the videos based on originality and the stories they told.
Congratulations go to Marah Mohammed Al Turkmani from Al Rashid Al Saleh Private School, Zaina Rashid Awan from Cambridge International School, and Dima Al Kawadri from Heriot-Watt University Dubai for the talent and heart they put into their videos.
They will be receiving vouchers to be used at Mall of the Emirates, Deira City Centre or Mirdif City Centre, courtesy of our partners Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
We hope you enjoyed making your videos as much as we enjoyed watching them.
Thank you again, and see you next time!
