Speech competition at ISKCON

In the month of August, ISKCON Vrindavan organized painting and speech competition. Over 8 schools from the area participated. The topic of speech was society without religion and for painting, the topic was Krishna in Vrindavan. The program was well organized. Our girls were nervous in the beginning but were confident at the same time. They knew they were up for some really tough competition. We are pleased to inform you that our school girls won prizes in both the categories. Supriya won second prize in the senior category and Savita won third prize in the junior category of the speech competition. Also Sheetal won third prize in the painting competition (Senior category). Sharing a few of photos of the event.

We are talking about our school girls who are now giving a couple of hours every week to teach vocational skills to other village girls at a small school in the area. Sharing some pictures of our school girls […]
