Emirates Airline Festival of Literature kicked off the first day of their 2024 edition with a ceremony to honour the winners of the Chevron Readers’ Cup. The award ceremony followed an extremely competitive final round which was held the same morning. The reading competition pitches student teams against each other in an assessment of questions from a list of books by a variety of international authors.

The winning team displaying comprehension and understanding of the book is crowned as the winner. The competition which has shown growth year-on-year had 5,000+ students entered the 2023-2024 edition of the reading quiz from across UAE and from KSA, Oman and Qatar. 80 teams made it to the final round, which were held in Arabic and English in person in two age groups – Primary and Secondary. The winners were awarded trophies for their school, Magrudy’s book vouchers worth AED 1000 and a medal for each of the four participating team members. Second and third-place teams also received vouchers and medals.

This was the twelfth year that Chevron has sponsored the Readers’ Cup which students and teachers alike look forward to. The prizes were presented by Muhammad Al Sadek, Commercial & Government Relations Manager, Chevron; Renu Sharma, General Manager & Country Chair, UAE and Dania Droubi, Chief Operating Officer, Emirates Literature Foundation.

Renu Sharma, “General Manager – Middle East JVs and Aviation and UAE Country Chair” said: “Our long-term sponsorship of this competition is our commitment to the future generations. Human ingenuity and innovation are key to solving the world’s challenges. By encouraging people from a young age to seek knowledge and to hone their understanding and learn problem-solving techniques, we can empower them to build a better world for tomorrow. It is through skill-building initiatives like the Chevron Readers’ Cup that we can enable sustainable human progress.”
