Mr. Toy Sgro visited us at YU to discuss the contest with the university administration but had no time to meet with you in the Main Auditorium, so I asked him to prepare that video message to you.

As you will see in the attached roster of universities, Alfaisal University is in and that the name of our university is highlighted in yellow indicating EdVenture’s anticipation of our participation. I highly encourage you to consider this participation seriously so that our university is on board.

This contest runs through the Spring Semester of this academic year. Therefore, you should not waste time to decide.

If interested, send me an email with your full name in Arabic and English, academic number, department, college and contact info (mobile plus email). My email address is asaad@yu.edu.sa

Once we have all applicants, the selection process will decide the final team(s) who will take part.
