Dubai Cares Creative Challenge in Schools

For the 2014-2015 academic year, we are introducing a ‘Dubai Cares Creative Challenge in Schools’ in response to the announcement made by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, about the #MyDubai initiative whereby he requested residents and visitors of Dubai to share compelling moments of Dubai on social media by using the hashtag #MyDubai.

The Dubai Cares Creative Challenge in Schools, in partnership with the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and with the support of the Ministry of Education and Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority, challenges all schools in Dubai to paint and decorate canvases of #MyDubai according to their own vision of Dubai.

To take part in the challenge, students will be asked to pay a nominal participation fee of AED 30 only per canvas where 100% of the funds collected will go to Dubai Cares in order to provide children in developing countries access to quality primary education.

The 2-week challenge will start on October 22, 2014 and end on November 5, 2014. At the end of this period, each participating school will shortlist the best 10 canvases which will then be submitted to an independent panel of judges who will select the top 3 canvases from each of the following levels or the equivalent: grades 1-6, grades 7-9 and grades 10-13.

The top 3 students from each level will be announced and recognized on Thursday, November 27, 2014. All participating schools will also be recognized and awarded for their participation by Dubai Cares, DTCM, KHDA and the Ministry of Education during a recognition ceremony hosted at the end of the challenge. 

To register, the coordinator appointed by each school may fill out a registration form and send it to Dubai Cares by October 9, 2014. For more information, please email us on
