Tata Steel's Society for Promotion of Professional Excellence organises the 9th Hindi Elocution Competition

Jamshedpur: The Society for Promotion of Professional Excellence (SPPE), a Society of Tata Steel, organised the 9th Hindi Elocution Competition today at the Centre For Excellence. This was an initiative to encourage the underprivileged children of Jamshedpur.

54 students from 20 project and government schools participated in the competition

To instil awareness on the issues related to environment, the topic chosen for the competition was Environment. Children belonging to both the groups - Junior (class 5 to class 7) and Senior (class 8 to class 10) were given the same topic with a time limit of two minutes and three minutes, respectively, to express their views. A total of 54 children from 20 project and government schools (Hindi medium) across the city, participated in the competition. It was overwhelming to see the array of ideas being discussed by the students, thereby strengthening the objective of providing these children the platform to exhibit their talent.

The evaluation was done by eminent academicians, such as Shipra Mohanty, Sona Rao and Shanta Kumari, of Jamshedpur. They assessed the participants based on the criteria of choice of piece, pronunciation, presentation, voice modulation and overall performance.
