Essay Competition Received Almost 10000 Entries

Written by Alice Rees on . Posted in India, News, News & Updates

We are very pleased to announce that our essay competition in Pune, India, is now concluded. We received nearly 10,000 entries from participants aged 10-17 from 15 schools, and from there we have chosen a select few winners.

In each school there were two age groups, and we chose three winners from each group in each school. From those we then chose three overall winners for each age group.

This competition was a huge success – teachers were keen to get involved because of the importance of the topics and the children were keen to engage with these subjects in a critical and thoughtful way.

All the winners received certificates, and there were also jute bags, notebooks, and stationery kits.

Here are some photos from the competition, and you can see some more photos in the flickr album of the event:
