Winners: RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards 2014-15

What's On

When we launched the RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards in November 2014, we weren’t quite expecting to receive as many entries as we did…and that too from across the country. In a way, our own reach took us by surprise!

We started segregating the entries from day one, organising them by age and quality. Over three months, our favourites changed almost every week and the RobinAge office would light up with roars of cheer each time we came across a superb entry.

But as we sailed into the last fortnight of the contest, nothing could have prepared us for the number of entries pouring in through post, e-mail and our website, www.robinage.com In the last week alone, we got bulk entries from over 20 schools! Our work was surely cut out for us!

As we scanned through poems, stories and artworks by the dozen, we decided we needed to include category in next year’s awards– the Best School Award–not for the of entries that but for the of entries received.

Seeing just how many amazing entries we got, we decided to add one new category this year itself–the Readers’ Choice Award–nine awards, one for each category and age group, not including the winning entries as selected by the judges.  

By the end of the first week of March, we had sent the entries to the three judges— Arzan Khambatta, Santhini Govindan and Natasha Sharma, who were nothing short of stunned by the calibre of talent. In fact, when we spoke to Khambatta, he said he had never had such a tough time judging an art contest. The work he received was exceptional!

Though there are only 27 winners as selected by the judges, we would like to congratulate each and every participant and thank you for setting the standards so high for the RobinAge Bright Sparks Awards. All the winners will be felicitated with a plaque and certificate. These will reach your school after the summer holidays, in June 2015, when the new academic term begins. And the winners are...
