The CBSE Heritage India Quiz is one of the enrichment activities initiated by the Board with the objective of inculcating among the students interest and appreciation for the rich heritage and diversity of our country.  Started in the year 2001, it has been generating tremendous enthusiasm among the student community.

It is needless to say that it has been the unstinted support and cooperation from schools that had enabled this success.  The trend needs to be continued and the schools are expected to participate with greater vigour in the Heritage India Quiz to be conducted in the ensuing academic session 2009-10.

As in the previous years, the first edition of the CBSE Heritage India Quiz will start from August 2009.  Teams will be identified on the basis of their performance in the first round of written preliminary quiz to be conducted in August, 2009.   Each school will be represented by three students forming a team who may be selected from classes IX to XII.

The written preliminary round will consist of multiple choice type questions in which the correct answer has to be marked on the OMR answer sheet .The total of the scores obtained by the three participants will be the marks scored by the team.

The meritorious teams will participate in the Zonal Rounds which are proposed to be conducted in September 2009.  This will be followed by the National Rounds featuring the Pre Finals amongst the teams qualifying in the Zonal Rounds and the National Finals for the best teams emerging out of the Pre Finals. There are attractive prizes and trophies besides certificates instituted for the winners.

The registration of your school for the competition should be completed by 25th May 2009.

You may fill up the Proforma for the same and forward to Dr. (Mrs.) Uma Sivaraman, Education Officer, Central Board of Secondary Education, “Shiksha Sadan”, 17, Rouse Avenue, Institutional Area, New Delhi – 110 002 along with the registration fee of Rs. 600/- through a DD in favour of Secretary, CBSE, Delhi.
