13th CBSE Heritage Education and Heritage India Quiz 2013

CBSE recognizes the importance of the cultural heritage of our country and believes that it is more than just records of the past. The board hence says that the youngsters should know about this heritage culture in order to develop a better understanding of the history, beliefs, history and values along with the socio-cultural context.

The CBSE board as result launched a website http://heritage.cbseacademic.in under Heritage Education Portal, mainly as a platform for the teachers to help students learn, explore and get acquainted with the local heritage. In fact this link also helps in getting connected with not only the National but even the World Heritage Sites.

CBSE conducting the Heritage India Quiz  2013

The CBSE Heritage India Quiz was initiated in 2001, and is an inter-school competition. The 2013 edition of the Quiz is being held under the joint venture of the CBSE Board and AETN 18 Media Private Ltd. and will be conducted in three phases:

• Phase 1: City Chapter: 1st week of September to Mid-October
• Phase 2 – Regional Chapter- Mid- November to 1st week of December
• Phase 3 – National Semi Finals and Finals – Mid -week of December

Phase 1: City Chapter- Registration

The City Chapter is bifurcated into 1, 2, 3 or 6 City Chapters as per the geographical diversity of the country in addition to the response from every region. The City Chapter will be tentatively conducted between the first week of September to the mid-October, 2013. The event will be for just a day comprising two stages, where every school is required to be represented by a team of three students selected from classes IX-XII.

Stage I Round: Written Examination

The round will have the quiz based on a PowerPoint presentation where the teams collectively answer through writing. The presentation will have 30 questions in all which will have to be answered in 25 minutes. Once the round ends, the students will be given the answers, while the evaluation of the quiz will take place simultaneously to decide qualifying teams for the next round.

Stage II Round: On-Stage

The second round will deal with an on-stage quiz for 60-75 minutes where the questions will be a mix of visual, verbal and audio items. This round will decide the 6 winning teams from every regional group to qualify for the Regional Finals.

Phase 2: Regional Chapter

The Regional Chapter will be held between mid-November and first week of December, 2013. The 6 qualifying teams will be placed in a single group in the Regional Final, rather than the individual 6 teams. This round will also have the on-stage Quiz comprising visual, audio and verbal items, which will hence decide the two top teams qualifying for the National Semi-Finals.

Phase 3: National Semi Finals and Finals

These will be held tentatively in the mid-week of December, 2013. The top 16 teams from the 8 competing regions will be here divided into 4 teams with 4 groups each. 4 teams, one from each group will qualify for the finals.
