CBSE is committed to the holistic development of students and strongly feels that students of today
must be made aware of the selfless and valiant services of the women and men who have served the
nation. The present day India has been possible only because several women and men of yester
years worked incessantly towards nation-building.
In continuation of its earlier efforts, the CBSE now announces an Expression Series on Pandit
Deendayal Upadhyaya, a renowned thinker. His life and contribution can be a source of
inspiration for the present generation. This Expression Series will open from 19th September 2014
to 22nd September 2014. The participants can submit their entries from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. each day. Winners will be announced on 25th of September 2014, which is the birthday of
Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya.
Salient features of this Expression Series are as follows:-
Entries can be submitted both in online and offline mode. Entries will be divided in three categories, i.e. Classes I-V, Classes VI-VIII and Classes IX-XII.
Entries can be submitted individually, in a pair of two students, or as a part of a school team with not more than five students in the team.
Multiple mediums, like essay, poem, one act plays (script not to exceed 2000 words), drawings, paintings, sketches, or a mix of various mediums (that convey the message of the topic) can be used
Differently abled/Visually impaired students can also use the audio/ video mode.
Entries can be submitted in any of the 22 scheduled languages or in English.
Different Topics for the different categories and applicable word limit (in case the expression is in the form of writing) are given in Annexure I.
From each category of entries, 30 best entries (10 individual entries, 10 pair entries and 05 team entries and 05 for differently abled students) will be chosen.
Plagiarised entries will be rejected without any notice. There will also be a telephonic/face to face interaction to ascertain the originality of the entries submitted.
The criteria for the evaluation will include: originality of expression, presentation, use of multiple media and relevance to the topic. Students need to refrain from directly taking material from the resources available. On the other hand, they should research on the topic and write in their own words.
The selected entries will receive a cash prize of Rs. 5000/- each along with a Certificate of Merit. All the participants will receive an online certificate provided they give accurate details.
Online registration and its details are given in Annexure – II. You can also submit your entry through Offline mode by using link provided for offline submission (refer Annexure III) or through WhatsApp (refer Annexure IV)
