Tadweer Closes Submissions for Eco-Awareness Awards in Abu Dhabi

The Center of Waste Management – Abu Dhabi (Tadweer) today closed submissions for Abu Dhabi schools and universities seeking to participate in its Eco-Awareness Award.
An estimated 556 models, drawings and photographs on the theme of positive behavior in public hygiene and the preservation of the environment have been received from Abu Dhabi schools at the close of submissions. This figure marks a significant increase over the 172 entries received in 2013 for the inaugural edition of the award.
In its expanded format this year, the competition has for the first time drawn the participation of 20 out of the 26 public and private universities based in Abu Dhabi.
Following the close of submissions, the competition has entered the second phase that involves the evaluation of entries by a specialised evaluation committee comprising experts from among Tadweer’s strategic partners that have supported the initiative since its inception. These include Abu Dhabi Education Council, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Community Development, and the Abu Dhabi Media Company represented by Al Ettihad newspaper, as well as stakeholders from the Tadweer team.
Tadweer’s Eco-awareness Award for schools and universities aims to raise environmental ownership among the students in the emirate of Abu Dhabi while developing social responsibility in the younger generation. This year’s award has targeted school students across three levels: elementary, preparatory and secondary schools, as well as public and private college students. The competition awards winners across four categories: best drawing from waste, best work of art from recycled waste, best photograph depicting waste management, and best 3D model from waste.
