A talent hunt competition hosted by Organization for Leadership Development was held at Scholar School Guwahati recently. It was held in collaboration with Unity Education Foundation and supported by Stars of North East. About 100 young students from a dozen educational institutions from different parts of Guwahati took part in this colourful programme.
The variety of talent displayed on the occasion was incredible, from mimicry to artwork, and from magic show to folk dance. The top three winners of the groups were (senior group) Javed Akhtar, B Barooah College; Sania Lama, Mission Jyoti Hindi School: Raminul Hoque, Baghorbori High School; (junior group) Tanaz Mehrin, Srimanta Sankardev Academy; Sanjay Barma, Satgaon ME School; and Bibhu Sinha, Satgaon ME School.
AS Tapader, member, Unity Education Foundation and other dignitaries present on the occasion gave away the prizes. Dr S Rehman handed over a book titled “Gender Sensitisation and Women Empowerment: Issues and Challenges” to the office bearers of Stars of North East with the hope that it would enable them to perform better in their programmes aimed at women empowerment. The book has been published by Unity Education Foundation.
