Nadasurabhi Children’s Competition 2011- a Report 


Nadasurabhi, for the third year in succession conducted a Children’s vocal music competition on 14th May 2011-Saturday.


The response from participants was so overwhelming that it had to be divided into two sessions, one starting from 10 AM for children in the age group of 12-15 and another starting at 4 PM for children in the age group of 8-11. Each session was judged by a panel of two judges, who were eminent persons in the field.


Supported by sponsors Sri.Visweswara and Smt. Leelavathi, there were lots of prizes to be won. As announced by the organizers and reinforcing the concept that all the children are winners and there are no losers, individual “Participation Certificates” with the participant’s name printed on it were presented to each child, along with individual gifts. Also the top eight winners, were presented with books. The top three winners, in addition to the other gifts, also got “Cash Vouchers” and “Winner Certificates”. Known for their innovation, the organizers also introduced a Quiz of simple questions to the children at periodic intervals and those who answer were given special gifts! Sumptuous snacks were also provided to all the participants as well as their parents/guardians. There was an overall atmosphere of celebration and satisfaction.
