Earlier today, OneVoice Palestine - in partnership with the Palestinian Ministry of Education - held their awards ceremony to honor the Palestinian winners of the Imagine 2018 essay contest. The event was held at the Ministry, and was attending by the Minister of Education Lamis Al-Alami, Major General Jabril Rajoub, and Sheikh Taysir Al-Tamimi, in addition to the families and friends of the essayists, OneVoice Palestine staff and volunteers, and other representatives from NGOs, the Ministry of Education, and other ministries.
Here are a couple pictures from the event:
The top essayist in each district was awarded a digital camera, and the top essayists overall received a laptop. In the coming days, a booklet with each winning essay - including the 3 winners from Gaza - will be published and circulated.
The awards ceremony for the Israeli contest will be held later in September.
