Kaikondrahalli Lake to host short story writing competition

Here is the first in a series of conservation-related activities at the lake approved by the Kaikondarahalli Lake Monitoring Committee. 

We are happy to announce the first annual short story writing competition by A Better Word. This is a platform for young writers to showcase their writing talents. The competition is for children between grades 3 through 10.

The categories are as follows: 

  • Grades 3, 4 and 5
  • Grades 6 and 7
  • Grades 8, 9 and 10

Several schools in the area have already signed on and there will be several more sending their champions. Please encourage your children to participate and let their create muse loose. 

This will be held on November 9, 2013, from 10am to 1pm at the amphitheatre at the Kaikondrahalli Lake on Sarjapur Road.

This lake has a rags to riches story, and a literal one at that. A lot of people have worked very hard to rejuvenate this lake and it truly is a jewel for all of us who live in this area. This is a free event, but donations for the upkeep of the lake are welcome.
