Since its creation in 1954, the Michel Chiha Foundation’s mission is to spread Chiha’s thoughts and writings.
In order to acquaint the new generations with Chiha’s conception of Lebanon and in order to revive the memory of our past, the Foundation organizes an inter scholar competition for students of Seconde, Première and Terminale.
In 2016, 220 students from 30 schools participated in the competition.
The Michel Chiha Foundation hosted its 2017 nation wide inter-scholar competition on Saturday March 4th at the Bristol Hotel, Beirut.
The theme for 2017 was the following:
(English) "But if our strength lies in freedom and tolerance, our weakness lies in an individualism which makes discipline useless and collective enterprises so laborious and easily spoiled. This is the other side of the picture." Lebanon at Home and Abroad
(French) « Mais si notre force est dans un ensemble de libertés et de tolérances, notre faiblesse est dans un individualisme qui rend les disciplines vaines et les entreprises collectives si laborieuses et fragiles. C’est l’envers du tableau. » Visage et Présence du Liban
Thank you all for your participation.
The Michel Chiha Foundation is now reviewing and grading the essays. The award ceremony will be held at the beginning of May. Details coming soon.
