We will be holding a grand painting competition in the Saling, Machulo, Talis, Balaygond and Marzigond schools. All the students from each school will have the chance to show their artistic creativity through this competition. Each school will nominate 10 to 16 of their best creative painters for entry into the competition after the opening phase. The nominated students will compete again for first, second and third prizes. The prize winners will be granted awards in each school.
Let‘s unite in each school to show our talents and creativity!
