Tata Building India 2010-11 edition targets 3 million students across 8 languages
The Tata group has launched the fifth edition of Tata Building India School Essay Competition 2010-11, a national-level contest in 8 languages that is expected to attract nearly 3 million students from 5,200 schools across 150 city-level competitions. Started in 2006 as an English-language essay contest, the Tata Building India School Essay Competition has grown to become India’s largest essay writing competition. It is organised every year to motivate and nurture young minds across India and encourage them to think on the lines of nation building. This initiative by the Tata group aims to inspire youth to become better citizens of the country leading to a Happy India.
The 2010-11 competition has started from key metros and will be conducted across the country from Jammu to Tirunelveli and Guwahati to Kutch. 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. The theme for this year’s competition is based on reducing poverty in the country. Young minds will be encouraged to express their thoughts on the solutions to this issue.
This year, for the first time, young Tata brands like Croma and The Gateway Hotel are partnering with this initiative.
