Tehran, March 24, IRNA – The book reading contest themed ‘Stay at home and read more books’ will be held on the occasion of Nowruz and national nuclear technology day.

The contest will be held by public diplomacy and information department of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.  

Thanks to Nowruz holiday and closure of schools and educational centers and with regard to anti-coronavirus national committee’s emphasis on staying at home and preventing from travelling, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran decided to hold online book reading contest.

AEOI has also invited those who are interested in attending the contest to send a short note about what they have read during Nowruz to @AEOINEWS in Instagram or to AEOI’s email address WEB_PUBLICR@AEOI.ORG.IR.
