The Dance competition was organized for two separate categories- juniors and seniors. The level of preparation and the skills of the kids left the judges amazed. The creativity these young children possessed was brought to the forefront in the ‘Street Play’. Judges and audiences alike were overwhelmed with the performance of all the teams.

An eminent panel of judges decided the 6 best students considered deserving of this award from amongst over 30 applicants. This scholarship covers the tuition fees of the winners for an entire year and for this year it is being sponsored by Titan Eye+, Jusco and Allahabad Bank.

The scholarship winners were felicitated as a part of the closing ceremony and the prize distribution for the winners of various competitions also took place. Officials from Tinplate Co of India Limited and CII were present in the prize distribution ceremony. The Chief Guest, Mr Venkatraman, Tinplate Co. of India Limited, said that the young people must grab the opportunities and chances presented in life. He was also of the view that platforms like Kshitij must be used for nurturing the talents and personalities of the kids while also thanking the participants and the organizing team.

This event acts as a prelude to the Daan Utsav , formerly known as the Joy of Giving Week. To ensure that all the participants left with a smile on their face a special gift was given to all the 500 participants along with participation certificates. And keeping in line with the Kshitij tradition , all the children were given balloons on which all of them wrote done their wishes and then let them fly in the sky.

The underlying message to the children through this event was that each one of them is special and talented in their own way. It is only about recognizing the talent, believing in oneself and working hard to achieve one’s goals.
