Continued knowledge is essential for meeting the challenges of the future in a changing world, which is why we encourage participation in this challenge, and appreciate its contribution to our country and the entire Arab World.” 

ARC Secretary General Najla Al Shamsi said, “We are pleased with the sheer size and level of participation that we saw in Kuwait. ARC aligned well with the governments goals to support a generation of avid readers, armed with knowledge, and ready to face their future and contribute to the development path of the nation as a whole.”

Over 63,250 students from various grades made it to the second phase of the Arab Reading Challenge; two committees were formed and assessed the participants. Alongside, the top ten winners from last year (2015/16) competed in the ARC Diamond Round; the students read 75 books in an academic year, with support from three supervisors and give schools – the winners were selected. 

The Arab Reading Challenge was launched by UAE Prime Minister and Vice President and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in September 2015. It represents the largest pan-Arab reading project, and aims to promote a sustainable model for reading through an integrated system of student-supervisor follow-ups and support, as well as monetary incentives for students, supervisors and schools across the Arab World. The project hopes to instigate a cultural renaissance in the Arab World by encouraging students to read and continuously expand their knowledge.
