The competitors seemed to have enjoyed the event,and the winners were very happy with the prizes they received. 

One of the winners, Sara Qawasmeh, said, “It was really fun being competitive with friends and I look forward to another competitions.”

Students also had the chance to win a polaroid camera in the free raffle.
