The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had successfully launched IGNITE in 2007 in collaboration with National Innovation Foundation and Honey Bee Network, in an attempt to harness creative and innovative talents of school children. With National Innovation Foundation (NIF), the board has planned to initiate IGNITE 2012 in the academic session 2011-12 with an aim to promote creativity among children. The board believes that students will be able to harness their natural creativity and offer solutions that could help in the real world as well.
The IGNITE-2011 contest saw participation of students from 25 states and union territories of the country. Overall 4,104 entries were received, which ranged from sectors like energy, environment, transport, general household utility items etc. The awards for the competition were given away in an exhibition cum award function by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President on November 11, 2011, at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.
The call for entries this year is from the following categories: technological ideas to solve any problem in day to day life; real life technological projects demonstrating innovative ways of solving problems or reducing drudgery or generating efficiency or conserving resources; traditional knowledge practices documented from elders in and around one's family; and information about some other innovators in the neighbourhood.
