The National Archives organizes an awarding ceremony for the winners of My Archive My Future Award
The UAE’s National Archives organized a ceremony to award the participants and the winners of its national project (My Archive My Future) contests. The project aims at raising awareness among students about the importance of documents, their preservation mechanism and how to create a family archive to be part of the UAE's present and future.
The ceremony was attended by H.E. Majid Sultan Al Mehairi, the Executive Director of the National Archives, and representatives of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) and of the education zones in the UAE.
The Executive Director of the National Archives thanked the Ministry of Education and Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) for their ideal and constructive cooperation with the National Archives. He appreciated the students’ creative participations in My Archive My Future Award and the parents’ efforts in supporting their sons and daughters who proved they were aware of the document importance and that their cognition and understanding had sometimes exceeded the project expectations as evidenced by the acquisitions of some of the students’ boxes which reflected the students’ national sense of loyalty and belonging to their nation and wise leadership. This is a matter of pride for the nation’s sons and those who are concerned with the educational process in the UAE.
His Excellency explained the role of the project (My Archive My Future) in bridging the gap between students and their societies as they have conveyed the National Archives’ message to their parents who responded to them and kept their important historical documents in the My Archive My Future boxes. Such documents would enrich the memory of the nation which the National Archives strive to collect and preserve.
He pointed out that the participations of about three hundred students in the contest were assessed and what they presented stimulated pleasure and optimism about a promising future of archiving and documentation for the student generations in the UAE.
A documentary film was displayed in the ceremony including a review of the project stages, starting with its launch on October 11th, 2015, followed by ten training workshops organized for the education zones in the UAE, which acquainted 500 coordinating teachers from 230 schools with the project and the teachers, in their turn, conveyed the idea of the project to one hundred thousand students as they distributed eighty thousands boxes for document preserving among schools across the country, and ending with its assessment stage.
