Students felicitated

 Nearly 350 competitors from the City’s middle and high schools cheered and applauded every time a team on the podium gave the correct answer.

The cheers were louder when other team members knew they had given the correct answer too. The marks they got would determine whether they advanced to the final round or not, from the preliminary round. The competition consisted of both visual and question-answer formats.

Surprisingly, boys and girls in the junior section often furnished answers to questions that the senior contestants could not handle like, “Which artist’s life is depicted in the Kirk Douglas film ‘Lust for Life’?” A youngster came up with the correct answer, Vincent van Gogh.

Quiz Master Arul Mani kept up a constant banter moving up and down the aisle, and kept the children engaged.

The winners in the Junior category are: First place: Shravan S and Nitesh H N of Carmel School, Padmanabhanagar, second place: Gowri S Mohan and Abhijeet B of Deccan International School, Padmanabhanagar and third place: R V Vishwas and Edwin Dominic of BVB’s Nagarjuna Vidyaniketan, Yelahanka.

The winners in the senior category are: First place: Karan Sinha Patil and Harsh Kanodia of Innisfree House School, J P Nagar Second place: Abhinav D R and Himakar Prakash and Third: Neeraj and Krishnakanth of Geetanjali Vidyalaya, C V Raman Nagar.
