The event was well attended, with the participation of more than 150 children from the government schools in Yelahanka and Allalasandra. Winners of the competition, would be presented their prizes in their respective schools in the week ahead.


After the competition, Ms Anna, a researcher from Russia who is currently doing a project with the Water Literacy Foundation headed by Mr Ayyappa Masagi took over. She showed the children shown short films on water conservation and talked to them about Rain Water Harvesting and how it is useful to us.

Surely, the children would have learnt some valuable tips on saving water in their day-to-day lives, and their teachers too would have returned home water-wiser.
