On January 18, when Vijaya Bank holds its quiz contest for high school students, it will bid for being recognised as India's longest running quiz.
This will be the 29th non-stop year of the Vijaya Bank V- Gen UTH quiz. The bank has sounded the Limca Book of Records that it is being held since 1986 for schools in Karnataka, making it the longest quiz to be held in the country. Giri 'Pickbrain' Balasubramaniam will be the quizmaster, a bank statement said here on Monday.
The Vijaya Bank Cultural Club will host it at the bank's head office in Bengaluru.
High schools in Karnataka can participate in the quiz and each can nominate up to four students chosen from Classes 8 to 10. Each year, a large number of schools participate and win attractive prizes each year. Many schools from across the state have confirmed their participation in the contest, the bank said.
Spot entries are accepted. Details are on the bank’s website, www.vijayabank.com.
