The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature’s inter-school reading quiz competition, the Chevron Readers’ Cup, is now open for registration.
It’s open to full-time students in the GCC. The competition is held in Arabic and English, and is divided into two age categories – Primary Schools (up to age 11) and Secondary Schools (ages 12-16). Teams are provided with a list of books written by participating 2018 Festival authors on which quiz questions are based; after an elimination round, the top 16 teams advance to the semi-final and final rounds of the competition which will be held at the LitFest next March.
Teams should register for the competition online before 23 October.
The Festival’s two student writing competitions, the Oxford University Press Story Writing Competition and the Taaleem Award for poetry, are already open for submissions and will close on 16 November.
