Kuwait excels in the ‘Gifted Arabs’ initiative for the 2023-2024 Academic Year

Kuwait, with support from the Ministry of Education, has achieved remarkable success in the third edition of the ‘Gifted Arabs’ initiative for the academic year 2023-2024. This initiative, aimed at identifying and nurturing young Arab talents, is organized by the King Abdulaziz and His Companions Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity (known as ‘Mawhiba’), in collaboration with The Arab Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) and the Education and Training Evaluation Commission.

In this latest session, Kuwait secured 12 top rankings at the Arab world level, demonstrating its dedication to promoting excellence among its youth. Notable Kuwaiti students, such as Saud Jassim Muhammad Al-Otaibi, Hassan Ali Abdul-Rasoul Bushahri, and Sarah Abdullah Saad Al-Humaidi, received the esteemed ‘gifted’ classification. Others, including Abdul-Mohsen Abdul-Aziz Abbas Hassan, Sheikha Turki Salem Al-Jumaiah, Batoul Reda Ahmed Al-Abbas, and Maria Muhammad Nasser Al-Ajmi, were also recognized. Additionally, Tayba Abdul Rahman Fouad Al-Sharrah, Dakhil Muhammad Dakhil Al-Tawala, Adnan Mansour Adnan Al-Ateeqi, Mubarak Mishari Mubarak Al-Jadaei, and Abdullah Saad Al-Rashidi were acknowledged under the ‘Promising Talent’ category.

The Ministry of Education outlined the criteria for participation, emphasizing exceptional academic performance or outstanding abilities in subjects like science and mathematics. Candidates were also evaluated based on their achievements in science and technology, including participation in competitions, research, and innovative projects. Participants had to be nationals of their respective countries and residing within them.

Approximately 705 students from 15 Arab countries took part in the initiative, focusing on those transitioning from ninth to tenth grade, typically aged between 14 to 16 years old. Using remote platforms provided by Mawhiba in Saudi Arabia, participants engaged in competitive activities across various disciplines.

The Ministry of Education reiterated its commitment to nurturing student talents and fostering a prosperous future. By supporting and empowering gifted individuals, the ministry aims to enhance their contributions to societal development. Through targeted educational and developmental programs, Kuwait seeks to enable students to achieve their aspirations and contribute meaningfully to the nation’s progress and advancement.
