Rotary Club

The Rotary Club of Cochin Midtown organised "Talenteens", a presentation-skills contest for the Rotarian M.V. Korah Memorial Trophy, at Kochi recently.

The team from Rajagiri Public School comprising Maria Ann Mathew of Std. XI and Ashok Antony George of Std. XII were the winners, followed by the team from the Mar Thoma Public School. The Choice School came third.

Club president Anil P. Elias said that 23 schools participated in the competition. The content-creation session was organised at the office of a private telephone company here. The teams chose their topic from a list of five. After collecting necessary information from the Internet, they created their own slides for the power-point presentation. The time allotted was 90 minutes. The presentation lasted 10 minutes. The performance of teams was judged based on the content, their poise and communication skills.
