CBSE is becoming technology driven and is generating an interactive platform to engage students in academic activity. Seeing the greater impact of social networking site these days, CBSE has discovered a way to use Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp to popularize its latest writing competition set to commence from August 5, 2014.
CBSE is well aware how to get connected with students. CBSE has planned a writing competition for its students in the newest technology - academic scheme which will be driven completely in a paperless milieu through both text messages and WhatsApp. The competition will be based exclusively on Pingali Venkayya’s life; he designed the Indian national flag and was a great freedom fighter.
The competition will commence on August 5 and will last till August 11. Each day a new topic will be given to students. There will be 7 different competitions & students can take part in any number of them. All topics will be related to Venkayya.
Students will have to present their assignments daily within the deadline set on that particular day. Students will have to click a snap of their writing assignment & send it across through WhatsApp to CBSE on the contact number 07042745234. Announcement of winners shall be declared on 12th August.
In order to participate in the competition, students will initially fill a registration form through text messages. For this, students have to give a missed call to the number 0120 4763981. Thereafter, CBSE sends an automated reply alongwith a template for registration form. This will inform students how to reply. Students have to fill their name, father's name, school & contact details. After successful submission, CBSE will reply with a confirmation & registration number.
