In line with this, the theme for the competition is ‘Water’.  
The drawing/ painting competition is being held mainly for students who are studying in the Government schools in Yelahanka and Allalasandra, but any children who are interested can participate. 
There would be three categories from Primary to High School. Paper and art materials (based on category – crayons/ pencils/ water colours) will be provided. Every participant would be given a participation certificate and three winners in each category would be selected by a panel of judges. 
Registration is free and can be done on the spot. Around 150 children have already registered. 
The school principals, teachers and YUVA members would be present at the event and would talk to the students on water, how it is the most important ingredient for our survival and how to optimally utilize it. Literature on rain water harvesting would be distributed to the students and a short film on water conservation along with photographs would be screened. Snacks would also be served.
