It is the “People’s day” to do something to take care of earth and the environment. This is really important to know the ways to protect the environment. Taking this very significant concept into account, students exhibited working models, projects, photographs, posters presentations or eco-friendly products which were in lines with the theme given.40 teams participated in the competition. The exhibits clearly pointed at the environmental degradation due to pollution, global warming and urbanisation. The competition generated interest and curiosity among students. They interacted with the participants to collect information of environmental problems in the world today and measures to be taken to control the issues. ‘Save Earth’, ‘Control Pollution’ and ‘Eco-friendly Solutions’ were the central themes of the exhibits.
The competition was judged by three faculty members, Ms. Sindhuja Joshi, Mr. Priyesh. G. And Ms. Nirali Verma. They judged the competition on relevance of the topic, presentation and content of exhibits by each contestant. After the judgement, Ms. Aditi Kharat and team of S. Y. B.Sc.
