Arab World Spotlight Challenge Winners

QFI Arab World Spotlight (AWS) Challenge
The QFI Arab World Spotlight (AWS) Challenge invites students to use multimedia as a creative way to respond to a film from the SIMA Arab World Vision Playlist. The playlist of 13 award-winning short documentaries touch on Arab culture & language and/or sustainability in the areas of economic, social, human, and environmental development.

This year QFI is spotlighting five students from Qatar who participated in the AWS Challenge.  Congratulations to this year’s winners!

The QFI AWS Challenge encourages students to express their ideas concerning social and environmental justice, human rights, and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), moving them from empathy and critical thinking to action. QFI would like to thank all the students for participating in this year’s Arab World Spotlight Challenge. We received so many amazing submissions and we would like to commend you and encourage all students to keep using your voices and continue to take action to make our world a better place.
