TABUK: The Prince Fahd bin Sultan Award for Scientific Excellence has become a distinguished cultural aspect of Tabuk, motivating students of all ages to compete and excel in government institutions, companies, and society.
The directorate general of health affairs in Tabuk, Dr. Gharmallah bin Abdullah Al-Ghamdi, was given the award for community service to honor its efforts in fighting coronavirus and protecting people.
Al-Ghamdi said the directorate’s success in fighting COVID-19 would not have been possible without the care and support of the Saudi leadership.
Abdulrahman Al-Harbi, a technician at the King Salman Armed Forces Hospital-Northwestern Region, was given the award for excellence in innovation and creativity.
He said winning it had motivated him to achieve more development and creativity. Al-Harbi has found a way to regulate the blood’s pulse flow in artificial cardiac devices during open-heart surgeries.
Noura Al-Otaibi, one of the best students at the Technical College for Girls, was given an award for programming and IT.
Al-Otaibi said her efforts were only possible thanks to the training environment and devices provided by the region’s General Department of Technical and Vocational Training.
More than 5,000 students in the Kingdom have won the Prince Fahd bin Sultan Award for Scientific Excellence, which was established 34 years ago.
