Students displayed posters depicting various forms of energy conservation at a competition on Monday.
Organised by Pahal School of Design in association with Northern India Institute of Fashion Technology (NIIFT), the topic of the competition was — “Save energy”. Around 100 students studying in Class XII and also those who appeared for the higher secondary examination last year took part in the competition.
Shristi Jha, a Class XII student of St Joseph’s Convent High School, won the first prize. In her poster, she likened birds and butterflies to various forms of energy and, showing them flying or fluttering away, warned people by saying “Catch if You Can”. Shristi got Rs 3,000 and a certificate. She also showed a net and conveyed a message that it is in our hands to conserve energy like fuel, water and petrol.
The competition was judged by the director of NIIFT, Vishav Bandhu, registrar Inderjit Singh and a faculty of Pahal School of Design, Jeevan Prakash.
Abhishek Lal, who appeared for the Class XII examination from S.M. Arya Public School, New Delhi last year, won the second prize. He made a poster showing the earth with a pocket. “The lesser the usage of energy, the more money would be saved. We should always take care of various forms of energy that are limited natural resources,” he said.
The winner of the third prize was Sushmita, who took Class XII examination last year from Krishna Niketan. She depicted various forms of energy by showing an extension chord with plugs attached to it.
