NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian high school Talai al-Amal ("Vanguards of Hope" in Arabic), located in the city of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, was awarded $1 million in Dubai on Monday for having the best reading initiatives in the Arab world.

The announcement was made at the closing ceremony of the Arab Reading Challenge, launched in 2015 by United Arab Emirates Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai Sheikh Muhammad bin Rashid al-Maktoum. The ceremony took place at the Dubai Opera House, where al-Maktoum presented the awards.

Palestinian Minister of Education Sabri Saidam attended the ceremony along with a delegation representing Talai al-Amal.

"The ongoing successes of Palestine will not cease, and the Ministry of Education, together with all Palestinians, are proud of this accomplishment," Saidam said.
