Schools present City Landmarks

This is now a Madras Day regular.
The contest for city schools to present less known heritage/landmarks of the city.

We began this contest many years ago as an event at which schools presented models of landmarks. We then moved on to ask school teams to go out and research on their themes, create Power Point presentations and present them at a day-long event.

20 schools signed up for this year's contest which was held at Srinivasa Sastri Hall. Luz. The judges were Dr. Balambal and Vincent D' Souza.

The top winner was the team from Kavi Bharathi Vidhyalaya from Thiruvottriyur. Its students presented the history of the Old Jail in our city, now the campus of Bharathi Womens College in north Madras.

The team from Sri Sankara Vidhyashram, Thiruvanmiyur bagged the second prize and that of Sri Sankara Senior in Adyar the third prize.
