The UAE General Authority of Youth and Sports Welfare recently awarded the student-run Emirati Cultural Club at American University of Sharjah (AUS) first place in the Educational Institution Category of the 42nd UAE National Day Outstanding Club Celebrations Award.
The club was recognized for its weeklong National Day festivities. The main celebration, which took place on November 27, 2013, was attended by His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the United Arab Emirates Minister of Culture, Youth and Social Development, who visited the El Etihad Art Gallery panorama at the Main Building, and attended the event's opening ceremony and welcome address by Dr. Thomas Hochstettler, Acting Chancellor of AUS.
Celebrating their win, club executives placed a large banner at the AUS Student Center on March 4, 2014, which congratulated the club members. The ceremony was attended by Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
"We are very proud of our AUS Emirati Cultural Club as it continues to showcase its UAE pride through National Day celebrations year after year; this award is a testament to their hard work and an encouragement to do even better in future events," said Dr. Al Shehhi.
