An online General Knowledge Quiz Competition was started for students in grade I to XII in July 2020 with its first episode launched on 23rd July.

With cash prizes being provided to students for their fast and correct response, the winners felt a sense of pride and achievement once they presented their earning to their parents. Special questions for grades I to III enabled even these tiny tots to win cash prize and feel encouraged to participate. “Quiz India” – the name given to this online competition, is sponsored by Holkar Educational Trust, and powered by Edify World School, Dehra Dun.
