The Tata group has announced the launch of the fifth edition of Tata Building India School Essay Competition for students. It is a national level competition in eight languages which is expected to attract nearly three million students across 150 cities. The theme for this year’s competition is based on reducing poverty in the country and young minds will be encouraged to express their thoughts on the solutions to this issue.
Two new languages, Oriya and Kannada, are being included for the first time this year, adding to the already existing English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Tamil and Marathi editions. Started in 2006 as an English-language essay contest, the Tata Building India School Essay Competition is organised every year to motivate and nurture young minds across India and encourage them to think on the lines of nation building.
Speaking about the competition, Atul Agrawal, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Tata Services, said “We are happy to see the enthusiastic response and the spirit displayed by the young minds from across the country. The passion in the hearts and minds of these young thinkers along with their noteworthy ability to express their thoughts is expected to lead to conscious citizens of tomorrow and contribute towards nation’s growth.”
