Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (Ahmednagar, Maharashtra) was the third winner of the challenge that received project entries from over 4,500 schools across the country using various ‘Adobe Creative Cloud’ tools.
While the winning teams in the three defined grade categories will be given an all-expenses-paid trip to Adobe’s global headquarters in the US state of California, the top nine schools will win an annual subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud to further their creative potential for long term growth.
“Our partnership with Adobe for Creativity Challenge in schools was a milestone initiative that boosted creativity in India’s classrooms, while celebrating the ethos of Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy and learnings during this momentous year of his 150th birth anniversary,” said Anita Karwal, Chairperson, CBSE.
Launched in October last year honouring the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the ‘Creativity Challenge’ is the contest designed towards encouraging students from across 20,000 CBSE-affiliated schools to showcase their creative expression, digital skills and personal vision depicting how Gandhian values can help the world today to prosper.
“It is heartening to see the overwhelming participation received by the contest from schools across all corners of India – encouraging young minds to the opportunity to experience how the powerful collaboration of imagination and innovation can help them maximise their potential, and truly thrive in the long run,” said Shanmugh Natarajan, VP – Products, Adobe India.
The CBSE-Adobe ‘Creativity Challenge’ saw the participation of students from 6th Grade to 12th Grade, where they leveraged Adobe Creative Cloud tools to prepare and submit creative projects across nine themes related to sustainable development goals and life of Mahatma Gandhi.
