Dad and Mom are mostly polite about them, but this is where they throw real hard
glances at your works and try to see the inner meaning (and perhaps tell you what
it is!). If you think that your works deserve to be gone gaga over, this is where
you can put that to the test.
The Hindu newspaper is organizing a painting competition for school children of classes IV to VII and class VIII to X, at 10 different locations simultaneously across India. Interested children have to paint (using water colors only) on a white drawing sheet of size 26cm x 27cm, on any of the four topics given below. Then they have to obtain certification from their art teacher or the principal of the school that the work submitted is their own.
The painting should carry the child's name, age, class, school and residential address, and should be sent to P Ranga Reddy, Regional Manager, The Hindu, 6-3-897 & 897B, Begumpet Public School Road, Hyderabad - 500016.
Topics for juniors (classes IV to VII)
- A morning walk with your pet
- A PT class in school
- Scene at the playground after school
- At the trade fair
Topics for seniors (classes VIII to X)
- A rainy day in your city
- Scene outside the railway station

There is no entry form or fee to take part in this competition. The entries should reach the address on or before September 8, 2001. The selected students will be intimated individually and they should come to the venue along with the intimation letter at their own cost on the specified date to participate in the finals, which will commence at 9am sharp on 30th September 2001.
