Knowledge is all about how a student interacts with all that is happening around him. What we call ‘youth development’ is probably nothing but an effort to make active participation in social issues around very real. This way this effort is shaping up is something that can also be tested through a tactically designed quiz.
The SQL or School Quiz league is a unique ‘Knowledge cum Youth Development’ initiative at the School Level. Some have euphemistically even called it a ‘Pratibha Ki Khoj’ event that was open to all schools (ICSE, CBSE and UP Board) in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh until now… but will include 5 more States this year. This means an addition of at least 25 more cities and 2000 more schools. SQL is working towards building India’s 1st Knowledge Network for schools. The event is only open to School students studying in 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th Standard.
The rules have been simple enough. Broadly speaking any two students of the same School can form a team and participate. There is no registration fee but individual contestants are NOT allowed to take part because SQL is a team event. Accessing other rules is easy… just login and know all about this quiz league that is slated to become one of the best soon. The URL to go to is http://www.schoolquizleague.com/
