Shilpmanjusha is awarded to 3 participants, where one winner is selected each from classes I-IV, V to VII and VIII to X in an Art and Craft Competition. The name of the award is inspired from the endangered, ancient folk art form –Manjusha --where raw materials such as clay, straw and natural colours are used to make vibrant art which is inspired by and reflects the artisan’s connection to nature, where the sun, the moon, snakes, champa flowers, lotus flowers, trees, maina birds, elephants, turtles and fish are important motifs. The idea of the competition and the Shilpmanjusha award is to inspire children to more consciously relate to the natural world they inhabit; not to spend their leisure time thoughtlessly but invest it in really seeing what is around them, and, with humble materials in the tradition of Manjusha, create art directly out of what they observe and engage with. In the event venue a space is especially reserved to exhibit the craft created by the students, to further allow to take pride in their handiwork and win appreciation from others.
