Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad honored Atlantic Free Press writer Kourosh Ziabari during the closing ceremony of the recent National Festival of Iranian Youth.
 

The National Festival of Iranian Youth, which wrapped up last Friday with the presence of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, introduced and honored 38 Iranian youths who had achieved national and international honors in various fields of culture, arts, science and society.

Sponsored by the National Organization of Youths, the festival awarded 38 selected Iranian youths in 14 fields of Quranic activities, cinema, literature and satire, fine arts, religious studies, rural activities, young soldier, paralyzed youths, young entrepreneur, media activities, young inventor, music, abroad-residing youth, social activities and performing arts.

According to Mehrdad Bazrpash, the director of National Organization of Youths and Iran's vice president in charge of youth affairs, more than 250,000 Iranian youths took part in the contest and submitted their works to the permanent secretariat of the National Festival of Iranian Youth.

The winning participants were introduced in separate ceremonies held for each of the 14 sections and more than 600 Iranian youths were introduced as the top contestants. Finally, 38 youths were picked up from the 600 final competitors as the winner of winners in each category.

Kourosh Ziabari was named the winner of winners in the category of media activities. He was honored by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, receiving the honorary mention signed by him and the silver medal of Iran's Superior Youth. The media activities category did not award the Gold and Bronze medal to any participant.
