Three girls from a zilla parishad high school bagged the top prize for their zero-waste Sthree Raksha Pads at the grand finale of the Telangana School Innovation Challenge held in the city on Monday.

The competition for the event was evident from the fact that more than 7,000 teams had submitted their ideas, with only 25 making it to the finale. Students from Mahabubabad earned the second spot for their multi-purpose bag for agricultural use to balance physical pressure on the complete body. The idea of organic chalk pieces by students from Adilabad fetched them the third price.

“School Innovation Challenge is a practical example of how to identify a student’s creativity. From the number of schools to teachers to students, the decentralised efforts led to organic growth of the challenge. These challenges should be organised in every district and I request the education department and Telangana State Innovation Cell to look at sector-specific innovation event that can lead to ecosystems being built,” said KT Rama Rao, IT minister, Telangana.

He said that while interacting with students, he learnt that all the ideas came from problems faced by their communities. “Beyond innovation, the change in government school students is witnessed through clarity of thought,” he said.

Education minister Sabitha Indra Reddy, referring to the vision of CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, said innovation challenge is a creative approach to nurture kids even during pandemic.
