The 2010 NYIT-Bahrain Carnival on March 20, 2010 was a success. This year’s event, themed "Journey Through History,” drew more than 1,500 people from the NYIT community and high schools and universities throughout Bahrain. The charity festival raised a total of $12,000 with proceeds donated to the Bahrain Society for Children with Behavioral and Communication Difficulties, a non-profit organization that focuses on autistic children.
This year, four teams of NYIT students took part in the carnival by creating visual displays and presentations centered around the Emergence of Islam, the Discovery of Oil in the Gulf, to the French Revolution, and World War I. Each team and theme had a designated area on the campus, and offered decorations, games, music, and cuisine relevant to their theme. As one way to give back to the local community, the annual event donates to a different charity every year.
