Sálim Ali Rolling Trophy Nature Competitions – 2016

SACON conducted “Salim Ali Rolling Trophy Nature Competitions – 2016” on 20th November 2016 in G D Mat. Hr. Sec. School Coimbatore. More than 2500 students from 50 schools participated in the competitions. SACON has been conducting these competitions for more than two decades. Over this period of time, this event has become very popular in and around schools of Coimbatore and nearby districts. Every year two to three thousand students from 50-80 schools participate in various categories of competitions such as Elocution, Essay writing, poetry writing, story writing (both in English and Tamil), painting and pencil drawing and nature quiz. One unique competition in this event is the bird watching or spot the bird contest to identify the young bird watcher of the year. Uniqueness of all these competitions is that the topics will be given only on the spot, to test the spontaneity, the real knowledge and skill of the student as opposed to the trained / or prepared competitions. First three positions in each of the competition will fetch points for the school and the school with highest point will become the Champion of the year and the rightful owner of the Rolling Trophy for the next one year.

The students actively participated in the “Way through Wetland”, a game designed by the SACON ENVIS in the “Snake and Ladder” game format with questions related to wetlands. The Director, SACON distributed prizes to the winners.
