New Horizon School, Irvine’s fifth – eighth grade students participated in the ninth annual Hassan Hathout Legacy Foundation’s essay contest. The Hassan Hathout Foundation is an educational nonprofit organization whose mission is to spread the message of ‘Love in God’ through the work and legacy of Hassan Hathout. This year, students were asked to submit an essay titled “How to Grow a Loving Heart” in which they describe how this topic relates to a personal activity or experience, historic event, or current world event.

The contest expanded on the national level to include numerous distant states. We are pleased to announce that 6 students from our fifth – eighth grades were selected as winners!

We’d like to congratulate Alesha, Ranya, Farah, Zayd, Omar, and Yahya for their hard work and truly inspirational writing.

We hope these students will continue to inspire us all to “grow a loving heart” and make the world a better place for our children. A special event will be held for the top contestants where each will receive a monetary award.

We’d also like to thank their teachers for their commitment and dedication in educating the leaders of tomorrow, inshAllah. #NHIRVINE#ProudHawk
