ALHOSN University organized its first poetry competition last December 14, 2010 at its Male and Female campuses.
Two renowned local poets, Saeed Al Qubaisi and Hassan Al Najjar, were invited by Dr. Mustapha Tajdin, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, to recite some of their masterpieces. Dr Mustapha Tajdin also recited a poem of his own.
The top 3 finalists were chosen from the combined male and female constants. The prizes were divided between the males and the females, with AED 1,500 given for 1st, AED 1,000 for 2nd, AED 500 for 3rd, and AEd 250 for 4th placers. Certificates of appreciation were also awarded. ALHOSN University Vice Chancellor and CEO Dr. Abdul Rahim Sabouni led the activities and handed out the prizes and certificates. He also presented a crystal logo of ALHOSN University to the two guest poets.
