The Ministry of Education and Higher Education honored students who won first positions in the School Stars competition organized by the Ministry in partnership with the Doha Film Institute (DFI).

H.E. Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education Dr. Ibrahim bin Saleh Al Nuaimi honored the students and communicated with them remotely, through the Microsoft Teams platform. He congratulated them on winning the competition, wishing them success in their scientific and practical lives.

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in partnership with DFI, had launched a short film competition, School Stars, for students of public and private schools in Qatar.

The theme for the first edition of the competition is 'The Bright Side'. About 1,200 contestants submitted short films, in Arabic or any other languages, expressing their opinions, observations and experiences regarding the COVID-19.

The Ministry announced cash prizes to winners of future filmmakers and producers in Arabic and other languages such as English, French or Hindi. The winner of the first place will get QR10,000, second prize is QR7,500 and third prize QR5,000.

The competition aims to provide students with new skills, discovering media talents, as well as taking advantage of their free time, in addition to introducing them to the possibility of producing short films. The ministry explained that the idea of the competition is to produce a short film of no more than one minute, and sending it to Doha Film Institute, where it is evaluated by experts.
