EMAAN’s mission is to celebrate student achievements and accomplishments. We recognize junior high, senior high and post-secondary students’ excellence in all aspects of life, including academic, community service, and leadership. EMAAN was introduced to Calgary in 2004 with an objective to encourage youth in our community to seek knowledge by furthering their education, to contribute positively to society and to celebrate Muslim student achievements.
This year, due to the current global pandemic, the EMAAN event will be celebrated differently than previous years.
Graduation awards will be given to students graduating from grade 9, grade 12, and post-secondary.
The EMAAN ceremony will be held as a drive-thru at Al-Salam Centre. We encourage the graduates to dress up and decorate their vehicles. The graduates will have a chance to come down for a quick photo as they receive their award, and then continue on in the drive-thru! Closer to the event date, you will receive an email informing you of your specific time slot to arrive at the event.
