The Special Jury Award in the 3rd International Life Skills Summit goes to Miles Bronson
It is a matter of immense pride that the team from Miles Bronson Residential School, Guwahati, which participated in the recently concluded "3rd International Life Skills, Values, Gender, School Health & Well Being Summit 2014" at New Delhi, was awarded the Special Jury Award in the Life Skills & Health Exhibition part. The School had prepared and exhibited an elaborate model of a science project which depicted how the waste generated by humans can be effectively converted into something useful for the society. The concept envisages the dual advantage of disposing of waste as well as generating products for daily use at no extra cost. The team also displayed hand made posters depicting values and gender equality. The summit was conducted at Summerfield School, Kailash Colony, New Delhi, from 10 to 12 Dec 2014 and included a vast range of activities to include Whiz Quiz, Poster Making, Thematic Jingles, Thematic Song and the Exhibition. A total of 160 schools from India as well as overseas had participated and four students from each school participated, bringing the grand total to 640 students. The event is organized under the aegis of the CBSE. From MBRS, Sudarshan Kongkham, Amit Chowdhury, Megha Talukdar and Gloria Ezung, all students of Class XI, comprised the team, which was ably led by Ms Jayshree De. Bagging the Special Jury Award has a lot of significance as the jury critically examines many facets of a team's performance and takes a decision justifying as to why the team in question deserves to be awarded. Winning this award immediately brought the North East into focus at the summit.
