The six best drawings will be selected at the levels of the primary, preparatory and secondary school, and valuable prizes will be awarded to the winners.
Dr al-Sulaiti invited families to ensure their children participated in the special festival, noting that the festival includes many cultural, entertainment and educational events as well as workshops, Al Dhad games, Arabic calligraphy, children’s murals among others.
The festival will conclude with an Animated Concert by Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.
