Winners: RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards 2016-17

What's On

The third edition of the RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards has received an overwhelming response. This year, works were based on everything from demonetisation and the girl child to self-awareness and world peace. Like every year, the works were creative, mature and reflective of thinking minds. At RobinAge, we take this as a sign of a generation of evolving, conscious young citizens.

Our judges this year were artist Arzan Khambatta, poet Santhini Govindhan and RobinAge editor, Cherry Divecha-Shethia.

Like last year, this year too we selected three best schools, based on both the quality and quantity of entries that came in. In this issue, we proudly present all the winners of the RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards 2016-17.

Here are the winners. Winners' parents can send their contact details and mailing address to contests@robinage.com 

Prizes will be dispatched directly to winners' school once they reopen after June 2017.
