We are in the process of selecting the new champions and it has been an interesting experience so far. We got an awesome 19 students from class 9,10 and 11 who were interested in becoming champions for this new academic year. Out of this, we will be selecting 3 or 4 of them. We need to look into the financial aspects of the project to scale up.
Just like the last year, we have a six step process in selecting the new students. From writing exercises to reading to public speaking (extempore) to group discussions. We have it all. It was really amazing to see the confidence level showed in the debates during the group discussions.
The aspirations are shown during their personal interviews. The last part comprises of the interviews of the parents.
We will be announcing the new champions soon and as a result, expand our work to more schools and more students.
