The magic wand of colours!
Every year HUDCO organizes a drawing competition to celebrate World Habitat Day. Most of the participants come from the marginalized sections of society associated with different NGOs. The participants are divided into two groups depending on their age -- 8 to 11 yrs and 12 to 14 years.
For the last two years our students have been participating in the event and have won prizes also. This year, the event was conducted on 11th September, 2016 at HUDCO Center, Bikaji Cama Place. 10 students (5 in each category) participated from different locations of our North West Delhi project. The students were provided with drawing kits as per the category. Senior group painted with water colours while the juniors used crayons for colouring.
The topic for this year was same as the theme of World Habitat Day theme of the year i.e. ‘Public Spaces for All’. The winners will be selected by eminent personalities in the world of art and prizes will be distributed on 5th October, 2016.
Such events help students in getting a different kind of exposure. Besides, the cash award of Rs. 10000, Rs. 7500 and Rs. 5000 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd position is very attractive. Our DLC staff and specially our Art & Craft teacher Mr. Himanshu has always put in extra efforts in identifying and training the students at the centers. These activities motivate them and play a vital role in overall personality development of students, something they don’t get to do in government schools, where they are mainstreamed.
