Innovative Young Citizens Challenge 2022 – Starter (Grade 1-2)

The Innovative Young Citizens Challenge has now opened for the Starter Group (Grade 1 and Grade 2). You can submit your entries by 25 July 2022.

If you are participating in the Innovative Young Citizens Challenge 2, chances are that you are already an Innovative Young Citizen. Now, here we are trying to scratch your brains and get some answers to these problem statements. You can present innovative ideas in the form of art, articles, models, projects, reports, illustrations, videos or any kind of expression. You can also use materials available at home to make 2D, 3D models, comic strips, stories, quotes and references, memes, and videos using canva, PowerPoint, chart papers, colours.

Innovative Young Citizens Challenge 2022 – Starter (Grade 1-2) – Topics and options

OPTION I – Solve The Problem Statements Given By Curious Times

Students upto Grade 2 can pick any ONE topic from the problem statements listed below.

Topics for Starter Group

  1. The environment is deteriorating. Share/ talk/ design a planet you would like to live in the future.
  2. Select a popular cartoon character, who can help create peace around the world. Showcase how!
  3. We love birthday parties. What could be good gifts and return gifts, which are good for the environment and memorable too? Show or tell.
  4. Design your dream eco-friendly car – art and craft.
  5. We all like picnics but there are very few ideal picnic spots. A zoo, a biodiversity park, a children’s theme park, a mall, what is your favourite picnic spot?


OPTION II – My Curiosity, My Concern, My Creation!

You, students, are also concerned about some issues and problems. Under Option II, students can submit their own solutions or innovations.

Some of you would have already worked on some problems, current or future. You have thought through something you want to create for the problems you care about. But what you need is a bigger platform and audience to share what you have created. So, here is your chance to share that. Make sure what you send is original with attention to the details of all aspects of the problem and the solution.

Rules for your profile completion:

All the students will receive certificates of participation if their work has been selected for publishing on the website. The information is mapped from your profile section. Here are some rules to follow from your profile perspective:

1. Make sure that the spellings of your name and school, and your grade are correct before making the submission. Once the entry is submitted, spellings and corrections are not allowed. Certificates will be made based on data at the time of submission.
2. Submitting the picture of the student is parents’ discretion and will be considered as their approval to publish. If you would like to share your picture along with your entry, you can upload your picture in the “My Account” tab before the submission of the entry. It will be displayed if it follows the image guidelines. Please ensure you submit a smart yet sober and clear picture.
