Etisalat Awards Celebrates the Back to School Season

by | Sep 2, 2021 | News

The Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature (EAACL), organised by the UAE Board on Books for Young People (UAEBBY) and supported by Etisalat, has offered public and private schools in the UAE a curated collection of titles which have previously won the prestigious prize with the aim of making quality literature accessible to UAE’s schoolchildren.

A part of the award’s strategy to cultivate a love for reading among students, these award-winning titles rank among the best Arabic literary works for children and are produced by some of the most creative and popular authors, illustrators, and publishers from around the world.

The Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature aims to support the book industry in the Arab World with quality Arabic books for children and youth and has brought about a paradigm shift in the lives of authors, illustrators and publishers who seek to create a positive impact in the field.

As an added attraction, gift cards featuring inspiring and motivational messages have been enclosed in the books along with feedback forms that solicit ideas to improve the quality of books for children and young adults in Arabic.

The Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature was launched in 2009 as an initiative by Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, Founder and Patron of the UAEBBY. Supported by the Etisalat Group, the award aims to raise the overall quality of Arabic children’s literature, showcase creative books that address important topics, and motivate authors, illustrators and publishers to produce innovative high-quality Arabic children’s books.

Schools that are interested in receiving the collection may contact UAEBBY on: info@uaebby.org.ae
