The country’s largest Iron Ore producing Navratna Company, NMDC, is conducting an online Painting competition and Chess tournament for children on Sunday, 15th November, 2020 as part of its 63rd Foundation Day celebrations.

The chess tournament for Boys and Girls will be held in two categories – Junior (I-VII) and Senior (VIII-XII). The drawing competitions will be held for students of classes I to XII in three categories – Sub-Junior (I-III), Junior (IV-VIII) and Senior (IX-XII) to highlight the COVID-19 impact under the following headings:

·         ‘Learnings from COVID-19’

·         ‘Protecting yourself from COVID-19’

·         ‘Recognition for COVID Warriors’

Both the competitions will take place online on Sunday, 15th November. Students from schools based out of Telangana, and NMDC-sponsored and supported schools in Chhattisgarh, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh will participate in the Open category.

The drawing competition hopes to enhance creativity in children by using drawing and colouring techniques in a structured and systematic manner to develop higher levels of creativity, self-expression, along with their artistic skills. The game of chess helps young people learn to concentrate, think logically, overcome obstacles, spot patterns and categorize information.
