One of these has to be from the classical grouping, while the other will represent your innovation.

ii. Budding Chef Competition | School & College Students

The Budding Chef Competition hosted by Vedatya has been a huge success with nearly 50 schools participating each year. In continuation with the same spirit, we are organizing a chef competition for school/college students and would like to invite your esteemed school/college to participate in the chef competition. Vedatya has nearly four-acre of fruit and vegetable farms dedicated to serving fresh, healthy, and sustainable produce. The farming initiative provides a platform to engage our students with concepts like Farm to Fork and sustainability in culinary arts.

The Chef Competition finds an interesting setting at Vedatya in view of the above-mentioned differentiators, enabling participants to simultaneously engage and learn as they showcase their talent. It is indeed a fantastic opportunity for all the students to demonstrate their skills, creativity and passion for a potential culinary / hospitality pathway.

Students / Budding chefs participating in this competition will also get a chance to interact and learn from some of the finest Chefs from the Hospitality Industry.

Participants will compete in the form of teams of two. The culinary competition will be run in two separate tracks, track 1 for school students and track 2 for college students. More details on the competition will be shared separately with registered contestants closer to date.

iii. “Digital Personalities in The Real World” – Sculptures from e-waste| School Students & College Students

We live in a digital world today. Most of our lives are spent interacting with digital media, characters and stories. However, we still exist in the real world. What if we can translate our digital thoughts into the real world? The competition is aimed at creating humanoid sculptures using e-waste. Contestants will plan, design, and create sculptures that resemble humanoids or creatures that are close to the idea of a human. The outcomes could be faces, torsos, or even full figures that create a character. They will then proceed to name these creations and tell a short story around the life of the character. There will
be no size restriction on the creations, but they should ideally be proportionate to the surrounding world. The work will be done in a span of three hours under the supervision and guidance of an expert. The judging will be done by an invited expert from the visual arts arena and will be followed by a short talk on the importance of art and creativity in daily life.

iv. “The Joy of Draping” – Innovative Body Adornment Through Draping of Cloth | School & College Students

Uncut cloth is a wonderful way to adorn our bodies. From Saris and Sarongs to Greek Gods and Goddesses, uncut cloth draped over our bodies have been a way to express ourselves and our social stature for centuries. Draping is a wonderfully creative way to express moods and feelings and gives tremendous flexibility for achieving varied results.

In this competition, participants will bring their own uncut cloth in the form of saris, yardage, turbans, dhoties, bedsheets, or any other long-form cloth and attempt to express their concept of adornment through draping. They will be allowed to use pins, hooks, or other means to hold the cloth together and create the desired effect. The focus will be on innovative ways of draping and will be supported by a story on the character surrounding the design. The contest will be judged by an expert from the fashion world and will be done through a ramp walk and show.

v. “Sandcastle Dreams” –Building your own dream castle | School & College Students

Sand is a versatile material. In various forms, sand or mud have been used since time immemorial by humans for creating everything from humble dwellings to castles and forts. Sandcastles have also always been a part of every child’s playtime and creates an intimate connection between body and mind, in a
nurturing environment.

In this competition, the teams will be given the challenge to create a sand castle of their dreams that they have to plan and execute in a span of three hours. The construction of the castle could use locally found materials as well as sand or mud. The contestants are free to imagine the form and structure of their
