To raise awareness about tiger conservation, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is conducting an inter-school online competition. The schools can enroll free of cost with the board by April 29.

CBSE has decided to conduct a three-tiered contest.
In round 1, a wildlife creative-writing contest will be organised in which students will have to write an original story or poem in 500 words based on any one of the video clips. A total of 10 video clips on tigers will be uploaded for viewing on YouTube or the school’s website.

In round 2, a tiger warrior camp will be organised. This camp is designed for the winners of "Earn Your Stripes" competition with an objective of understanding forests and animals, protection of forests, knowing the stakeholders, studying the dependents living in the forest and most importantly, tiger behavior.

Round 3 would be the grand finale. The main event will be a programme which would include various activities, such as photo exhibitions, music performances, drama competition and felicitation of all winners on July 29. It would be attended by luminaries in the field of nature conservation.

Paramjit Kaur, principal of BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar, said, "Our students are very much interested in the competition. Last year only our students had prepared a project on biodiversity. So we will participate in the competition. This is a great initiative by the board to bring students closer to wildlife."

Interested Schools can send the filled forms to SAEVUS Wildlife India, 253, Powai Plaza, Opposite Pizza Hut, Hiranandani Gardens, Powai, Mumbai-400076.
