ALHOSN has announced the winners of its annual ‘ALHOSN Exhibition Stand Competition’ which ran from mid-August to October 3, 2011. The best design will be used for all major events ALHOSN will participate in for the academic year 2011-2012, including Najah, a leading education training exhibition and career fair in the Middle East, and Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX), the largest education fair in the Middle East and Asia.
The contest was open to all ALHOSN students, who were challenged to design creative and modern display spaces to represent the university. Entries included the ALHOSN logo, audio visual presentations, a workstation, a display counter, and a brochure holder.
Rana Al Hussaini, the 1st Placer from the Architectural Engineering Department, won AED 2,000; Manal Constantin from the Interior Design Department was 1st runner-up and received AED 1,000; Adeelah Al Hassan from the Architectural Engineering Department was awarded AED 500 as 2nd runner-up.
“The 2010 winners of our stand design contest did an excellent job capturing the essence and values of ALHOSN in a unique and dynamic way. Competition was tighter this year as all of the previous awardees were from the Department of Architectural Engineering and so the other departments wanted to prove their designing skills as well. This is an excellent platform for us to showcase the talent, determination and creativity of our students to a regional and even global audience during the various exhibitions we attend each year,” said Dr. Raymond Tennant, Provost, ALHOSN University.
The ALHOSN University competition jury met on October 3, 2011, the deadline set for the submission of entries. The winners were named the following day at the Female Campus.
