Winning a Prize in Google's Knol Oktob Competition




As you may know from my previous posts, I have taken part at the Google's Knol Oktob Competition that was held at Alexandria University..

I've written this post about my participating essay in the competition

The essay also has received a quality badge from Google

And today, I received a prize at the awards ceremony that was held at the Great Hall of Bibliotheca Alexandrina...



I'm so glad for that prize :) .. I came among the top 100 best essays from a total of 1649 essays that took part in the competition from Alexandria University students.. !

I liked the event, although it started 45 minutes late, but I managed to take nice pics!

I love this pic with Mr Wael Fakharany, Director of Google Egypt and the Middle East, who's such a very modest, interesting and amazing person who I was so honoured to meet!



Thanks to all those who took time to vote, read or comment on my essay.. :)

Also, congratulations to the Faculty of Engineering Team that publicized the competition for being the top winning team among all the faculties of Alexandria.. They were really great!!

Thanks Google!
