Ajman, UAE (October 21, 2013) – Around 100,000 students from different schools in the northern emirates will be busy in the next few weeks as they prepare their entries to Ramada Hotel & Suite Ajman’s “Going Green” Art Competition. With the theme “Going Green: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”, the final submission of entries for the competition will be on 30th October.
The team of Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman headed by General Manager Iftikhar Hamdani has completed the distribution of the art sheets to students in Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Sharjah, Um Al Quwain and Fujairah. Majority of the students and teachers from the schools welcomed the initiative and expressed enthusiasm to start the activities.
Iftikhar Hamdani, General Manager, Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman, said: “We are very pleased with the positive response from the schools during the distribution of the art sheets, as we witnessed the students’ eagerness to participate and showcase their talents.
