In search of inquizitive minds

|

The Career Launcher hosted India’s largest quiz competition Inquizitive Minds. Around 9 million students across 20,000 schools and colleges in 100 cities participated. The aim was to encourage young India to learn more about the world.

Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle hosted the competition in Bangalore on November 12. It was divided into school and college levels.

The winners, Sanskriti School, Delhi, and Osmania Medical College, Telangana, were awarded a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh. The first and second runners-up got Rs 50, 000 and Rs 25, 000, respectively.

Thimmaiah NK, network manager, South, CL Educate, said: “We are glad to host the first season of Inquizitive Minds. With continuous evolution of the industry and changing requirements, there is a need to prepare students right from the early stage so that they stand out as young achievers. Such competitions help and encourage them to learn various topics other than regular academic curriculum and continuously work towards holistic development.”

Gautam Puri, Vice Chairman & MD, CL Educate Ltd, said: “It was a wonder to see young minds coming together to take on such a huge challenge of knowledge. If you can make education fun and interactive through platforms like this one, we will have a brighter future. Inquizitive Minds is making a mark in the sphere of quizzing and we hope to take this initiative to the next level.”
