Prizes worth SR 24,000 (U.S. $ 6,400) will be awarded to the best three. The aim of the competition is to improve existing Islamic websites and encourage improvement of documentation and technical presentation as well as to promote the best ways of easy access and utilization for these locations.
On Friday, the WAMY office announced the launch of an introductory program on the National Public Television channel, aimed at the Arab community in Fairfax County, Northern Virginia, which is estimated to be about 100,000 out of the 1.5 million people residing in the area.  WAMY already broadcasts an English-language program on Islam twice a week.
