Bethlehem University team wins Google Online Marketing Challenge

A team of five students from Bethlehem University have won first place in the Google+ Social Media Marketing Award- Google Online Marketing Challenge 2013 in the Middle East/Africa region.

The Bethlehem University team was among thousands who competed in the contests organized by Google Inc to help students get experienced with online marketing tools and to specifically get introduced to the google marketing system. 

Under supervision of Ms. Nadera Al-Araj, former Bethlehem University faculty, the team won this competition for the third year in a row.

“Dear Hind,

Congratulations! After evaluating thousands of accounts and reports, we have selected your team as the Regional Middle East & Africa Winner of the 2013 GOMC Google+ Social Media Marketing Award!” the Google Online Marketing Challenge Team said in their email to the team leader.

The team is comprised of five female students of Bethlehem University, namely, Hind Abu Shkhadim BU’13, Ala’ Suboh BU’13, Margeret Al-Sous BU’14, Lina Slebi BU’14 and Laila Al-Zghair BU’13.
