International Women’s Week Essay & Art Contest

by Adrianna Tan on March 15, 2015

We are heartened by the support that we at Gyanada Foundation have seen from India, Singapore and around the world. We have grown, not only in size, but also in team, vision and ambition.

As part of our celebrations for International Women’s Week, our new website and other good news, we ran an essay and art competition which saw good response from women across colleges in India.


We’re happy to announce that the winner of the drawing category is Dyuti Sen of Loreto College, who created the above piece which signifies the importance of educating girls in India.

The winner of the essay category is Maitreyee Roy Malakar of IEM, whose article “Education, Freedom and Social Transformation in India” resonated deeply with the judges. Click here to read her winning entry.

Congratulations to both Dyuti and Maitreyee!

We thank all participants for taking part in this year’s contest and we look forward to your entries next year.
