The competition included five areas: story, essay, poetry, calligraphy, and drawing and was implemented for all three educational levels. Two hundred and twenty-eight students from public and private schools competed for its prizes in the finals, and it contributed to achieving returns and benefits for students and competing schools alike and to produce student talents that enhance the national presence in various regional and international cultural competitions, so that the flag of the Sultanate of Oman flies high on the podiums.

Dr. Sulaiman Al-Jamoudi added: “The competition, with the gains it achieved and the linguistic movement it created among students, enhanced the development of their linguistic and creative skills. From this standpoint, the vision of the initiative was not limited to the areas of the competition, but rather included extracurricular events and activities that helped hone the students’ talents and abilities in the various Arabic language arts, such as training workshops for proficient students in how to write creatively in stories, articles, poetry, drawing, and Arabic calligraphy.”

Al-Jamoudi concluded his speech by saying: “The Ministry’s continuous interest in student talents is the translation of the human and society pillars in the Oman Vision 2040 and its priority to create a society whose human being is creative, proud of its identity, innovative and competitive, and an embodiment of what the great goal of the School Education Law stipulated in its second article is to achieve comprehensive and integrated growth of the personality of the learner in its mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects.”
