Posted by on Oct 5, 2014 in Events | 0 comments

Mr. Kunal Savarkar would be hosting the much awaited SOA Quiz Wiz 2014 on 26th October 2014 at Siksha O Anusandhan University, Bhubaneshwar. The SOA QuizWiz, organized every year by the Bhubaneswar-based Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan University, has become one of the premier national-level quiz events for college students in Odisha. Students from within the state and outside have been regularly participating in the event, the fourth edition of which is scheduled to be held on October 26, 2014. The contest this time is set to get sharper as students studying at the Plus Two level will also be allowed to participate. Till now, only undergraduate students were invited to take part in the event. The prize money on offer is also attractive with the winner of the contest taking home a purse of Rs. 1,00,000 while the runner-up is presented Rs. 60,000 and the third spot finisher winning Rs. 40,000. SOAU launched the quiz program for the first time in 2011 when it organized ‘Dharohar’, a quiz exclusively for engineering students which was confined to matters relating art, culture and heritage. INTACH was SOAU’s partner in organizing the event which was an unqualified success. The University decided to hold a quiz contest in 2012 on a wide spectrum of general subjects attracting large participation. It was repeated successfully in February 2014. It was decided to conduct it on a bigger canvas by allowing students in the Plus Two classes to participate.
