National Declamation Contest to be held on 24th and 25th January
Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) under the aegis of Department of Youth Affairs is going to organize National Declamation Contest on 24th & 25th January 2019 at Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, Teen Murti Bhawan. National Declamation Contest is being conducted in order to ensure mass youth participation in the Celebration of Republic Day on 26th January.
The aim of the programme is to further strengthen the spirit of Nationalism and Patriotic feeling amongst youth and masses for wholehearted participation in nation-building. Through this programme youth with leadership qualities and good communication skills will be identified for their holistic development and empowerment. This will enable them to take lead in understanding the functions and policies of the government towards nation building. NYKS has been organizing National Level Declamation Contest successfully since the year 2015-16. From the current financial year, the National Declamation Contest is added in the list of core programme under Annual Action Plan.
So far, 40192 contestants from 4020 blocks, 9281 contestants belonging to 556 Districts of the country and 500 contestants from 29 States have participated in the Declamation Contest since its inception in 2015. The Block, District & State level Declamation Contest for the year 2018-19 has been organized from September 2018 to 15th January 2019.
The activities carried out by NYKS not only reach the masses in the country but also provide youth an opportunity to exhibit their soft skills like presentation skills, art of public speaking and engage in positive discussion. The topic of declamation would help a great deal in creating awareness about the Prime Minister’s Flagship Financial and Social Inclusion Schemes denouncing all kinds of social evils and promoting the spirit of Patriotism.
