DK School Quiz 2017
The 4th edition of the DK School Quiz, in association with Quizcraft Global and Eureka Bookstore, was recently held in New Delhi. Designed to educate and evaluate students from classes 7–9, the DK Quiz offers an opportunity to go beyond textbooks.
Instead of asking schools to handpick teams, the Quiz teams conducted preliminary rounds involving all children in the participating schools, thereby bringing more students into the fold. The intra-school series, which started on 3rd July, covered 45 schools this year and involved 8,374 students.
At the Grand Finale, DK volunteers explained the intricacies of the 3-D printer, and behind-the-scenes work of the new 3-D Printing book to participants. In addition, the Local Publishing team promoted the upcoming Birds About Delhi title. Of the 43 schools that participated, and the wildcard entry from the winner of the Online Quiz, 6 teams were selected to go on through to the stage finals. Siddh Mamtani and Kartik Singh from Gyan Bharti School emerged triumphant, followed by Ankit Sharma and Arnav Negi from Delhi Public School, Noida.
The second Runners up position went to Saarthak Chhabra and Shreyansh Bawari from DAV Public School, Gurugram.
DK Delhi and Street Art
To commemorate it’s 10th year in Delhi, Bookaroo came up with the idea of creating children’s books-based murals on 10 walls around Delhi. DK’s team of designers and editors created an eye-catching mural called Ek Duniya Kalpana Ki. DK books cover every subject and inspire curiosity about the world around us and the tenor of this painting conveys this adeptly. This mural is curated at Sarojini Nagar Public Library, a solid foundation to shape young minds.
