THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The prize-money for winners of the various events for school children who won medals for Kerala in the National School Games was distributed by the Education Minister, M.A. Baby at a function held here on Wednesday.

A total of Rs. 10.50 lakhs was distributed among 136 students who had represented the State last year in athletics, aquatics, cycle-polo, judo, taekwondo, kho-kho and volleyball.

Speaking at the function, Mr. Baby hoped that the substantial increase in prize-money already announced by the Government would spur students to achieve greater laurels in the National Schools Games.
