How To Participate
The contest is open to all school students in Qatar until May 5.
The questions can be accessed via Qatar e-Nature’ mobile application on a smartphone or tablet or web browser at the www.contest.enature.qa
The contest, now in its second year, is held in collaboration with Sasol, an international integrated energy and chemical company, and Friends of the Environment Centre (FEC).
This year new questions are added about the content of the app, which has been updated to include mammals and reptiles in addition to the existing plants, birds, and insects.
Participants can find the correct answers to the questions on mammals, reptiles, birds, plants and insects by browsing through the app content. Students can also enter a photo of nature in Qatar for the chance to win.
The SEC will promote the use of the app in schools and encourage students’ participation in the contest. The SEC has supported the app due to its value in educating children on nature in Qatar.
The user-friendly app is available free for download on Apple App Store, Google Play Store for Android, Windows Phone Store, and BlackBerry App World.
