The stakes are much lower, and the entry, costs. Of course, getting a B and all
the sponsorships that follow is not everyone's bed of roses. So what we have here
is a distribution of income.
The Charminar Sports Academy was founded in the year 1999 by the sportsmen duo Francis Dass and Sirajuddin Ahmad, to help and guide young talent seeking to pursue sports along with their regular studies. This organization regularly conducts classes for students in sports, and the outstandingly talented ones are often chosen to participate in district level competitions, and are trained and guided further.
Where the institution goes a step further is in the intellectual touch that it provides. Apart from physical activities, the Academy has also been actively conducting quizzes based on sports, and also on history, science and films. This is the 6th quiz competition that they are organizing, and this time it is at the College of Technology and Engineering, Secunderabad.
The quiz will be in two rounds, and will have 10 questions in the first round, the qualifying one. The ones who answer all the questions correctly will qualify for the second round.
The second round is a money earning round. Each question answered correctly will get a cash reward of Rs. 200, with an ultimate prize money of Rs. 20,000. Reminded of a certain game show? But it's not that easy. "Obviously the questions will be pretty tough," say the organizers.
All are welcome, and there is no age restriction for participation. Just walk in with Rs. 50 for the application form. Please contact Imran at 631-4225 for application and further details.
