The EIEIO award is bestowed on 3 participants for prowess in Recitation, not in the vernacular but specifically a recitation of English popular poems. One winner is selected out of three participants each, from classes I-IV, V to VII and VIII to X. The name of the award refers to the vowel-refrain in a popular nursery rhyme. The children are invited to participate in the competition in the spontaneous rhythm of "EIEIO" – in the spirit of not being afraid to hold forth in the unfamiliar medium of English, in the spirit of reciting something that is close to the rhythm of regular speech -- something that rolls off their tongue easily, reciting which they need not be scared at all! The name of the award EIEIO itself breaks the fear barrier and handholds the child used only to his mother tongue to step in front of an audience and have the confidence to recite something in English.
