Quiz contest tomorrow

By Our Staff Reporter

CHENNAI, SEPT. 1. The Hindu Young World Quiz is all set to take Chennai by storm this Friday, September 3 at the Kamaraj Arangam. This is the fifth edition of the quiz. Conducted at 11 centres including Bangalore, Coimbatore, Kochi, Madurai, Mangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Tiruchi, Vijaywada and Vizag, this quizzing extravaganza is open to school students from class nine to 12.

Beginning at 2 p.m. with the preliminaries to identify the six teams to go on stage and compete for the regional finals, the winning team from each city will qualify to participate in the grand All-India Finals to be held in Bangalore on November 5.

Many city schools have already registered, and some institutes from places such as Pondicherry, Nellore and Panruti. Unlike previous years, only four teams from each school are allowed for the regional finals, instead of the usual six.

The show, managed by the QUIZwallahs, is not only about quizzing. For the audience, it promises to be a grand fun, picnics, cheering on favourite teams and answering special questions meant for the audience and in the process winning some great gifts.

Eveready is the title sponsor with national sponsors being Sify I-way, Competition Success Review, Reynolds Laser tips pens, Classmate Notebooks by ITC Expressions, Canara Bank, Dukes Chocolates and Tiger Biscuits.

Film star and member of Parliament R. Sarath Kumar, will be the chief guest.
