Encouraging school students to research . . .

This is one contest for schools which has kept its date with Madras Day. The contest which asks school students to study a theme and present it using multimedia at a common venue.

This year, the contest focuses on City Churches. In the past we had themes on Old Houses, Temples and Neighbourhoods too.

The contest asks three students in each school to choose a church this year and study it - its history, architecture, legends and unique features. Take pictures and videos and mesh them together for a short PP presentation.

Mylapore Times, the neighborhood newspaper sponsors this contest. SINA sponsors the venue - Srinivasa Sastri Hall, Luz.

This year the event is on Aug. 18. We expect 20 schools to sign up.
