Another Triumphant Year for the Chevron Readers' Cup Concludes

Dubai, 10 March 2018:   Winners of the UAE's annual book battle, the Chevron Readers' Cup, were declared at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature today. The reading quiz concluded its most successful year since its inception with almost 3000 students from schools across the GCC participating.

The Festival makes reading accessible and fun for students around the region, which is an important step in inculcating a love for literature and for fostering a knowledgeable and learned society. These are key pillars in Chevron's aim to support education communities in our areas of operation. We wish all the participants and winners the best as they have gained valuable insight into the world through these books and are already a step ahead in their learning journeys.'
