This event was conducted under the E-Week @ School program by National Entrepreneurship Network, India. E-Week is Asia’s largest campaign for entrepreneurship celebrated throughout India in 30 cities with more than 6,000,000 participants. Our tagline- “We Nurture for a Better Future!!” rightly speaks about the motive of the students of PCCOE. We believe that the future of our country lies in the hands of the young students. Thus, the enthusiastic students of PCCOE started the E-week of 2012 with a visit to Dnyana Prabodhini School, Pradhikaran.
We conducted on-the-spot Poster competition for the students of 8th standard, who were given the topics of Child Labour, Plastic Collection and Traffic Rules.
The topics were chosen, keeping in mind, the current issues which are to be brought into limelight in today’s world. Social Entrepreneurship is needed to be grown among young minds. Indeed the posters brought out the best of the students and the judges were in awe. The students were given a time slot of 1 hour. In this one hour, the students had to put on their “Creative caps” and portray their painting skills in the poster. We could see that the little kids weren’t anymore to be referred as kids, because their posters spoke everything about their mindset and the way they dream to change this world. Their ideas and unique approach towards current issues of society left us stunned.
We also conducted Poster Competition for the students of 9th standard, who had the theme –“Entrepreneurs who changed the outlook of the World!!” and were supposed to prepare the posters at home and present it the next day. The little kids indeed left us speechless with their presentation skills and the creativity in their posters. The topics they chose were on Mr. Narayan Murthy, Mr. Jamshetji Tata, and Mr. Steve Jobs. They had a deep knowledge on the subject and displayed their talents in a very confident manner. The students themselves expressed that they would want to be entrepreneurs in future and would take inspiration from such great people.
Lastly, we conducted a Debate Competition for the students of 8th standard on the topics-
1) Plastic- uses and misuses
2) Child Labour- Pros and cons.
The students spoke very confidently and indeed kept up the healthy competition. The points they put forth during the debate impressed the judges and brought out their speaking skills. Truly, an opportunity for each one of us to learn from those little ones.
The event in Jnana Prabodhini School ended with felicitation of the winners and inviting them to our college for the valedictory function on 18th February for certification.
