Energy Conservation Painting Competition 2014(712.1 KB) Dated:08.08.2014

The habit of conservation is best introduced and inculcated at the school age. It has been seen that the Children are the best agents of change and in this case we need to equip them with the information and knowledge on energy conservation and create interest among them on this important subject.

In this regard, Ministry of Power has taken an initiative and has been organizing Painting competition on Energy Conservation for students since the year 2005. The competition is held in three stages, namely, School, State and National Level since 2005. In order to strengthen the campaign, higher classes of 7th, 8th and 9th standards are also being included from this year onward in addition to existing classes of 4th, 5th and 6th Standards. Students of 4th, 5th & 6th standard students under Category ‘A’ and for 7th, 8th & 9th standard students under Category ‘B’ are eligible to participate in the competition.

 The National Painting Competition on Energy Conservation 2014 was a resounding success.
