Mega Educational Program at ANA Convention 2012

Dear Nepalese Community Members,

Realizing the need of educational programs and its impact on our future generations, Dallas ANA Convention-2012 has taken an extra step to introduce a two-day quiz contest program during its convention this year. Nepalese teenage kids, based in Dallas Fort Worth, have been benefiting from this program for past two years. It has been a very successful educational event ever introduced by any Nepalese Society in Americas. The overall program has been tailored in such a way that participants always keep standing on their feet and every moment brings new excitement even to the audience in the back rows.

The mission of the program remains to be “Enjoy and learn”. The program addresses different aspects of the learning steps that kids need to prosper. Time management, analytical thinking, quick decision, public speaking, team building and leadership skills are the major areas that this contest will help your child with. At the same time, participants not only learn about Nepal but also learn a lot from around the world, as the syllabus details.

The quiz software designed and developed by a Texas resident of Nepali origin, will be utilized to hold the contest. The system is fully capable of holding the contest in a fair and intelligent way. There will not be any manual intervention while selecting the teams for new and/or passed questions. The system will rather distribute questions evenly in a random manner.

Parents/Guardians are requested to have their kids enrolled as early as possible. We request the local Nepalese organizations to select 5-member teams and get them registered. There is no limit on number of teams. We also encourage individuals to team up and register as a team. The age limit is 13-19 years. Every participant must bring in a picture id for age verification purpose. You will not be allowed to participate in the contest if you do not have any age verification document.

Thank you.
