With record participation of over 850 schools from 32 cities, CBSE Cryptic Crossword Contest 2014 is the world’s biggest and nation’s premier crossword testing platform for high school students. It seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake the habit of solving crossword puzzles.

 

Chief Guest D K Sarraf, CMD, ONGC gave away the prizes in the presence of guests of honour A K Ambhastha, IFS, CVO, ONGC; Sunil Barthawal, IAS, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Steel; K N Jha, IPNTFAS, DG NICF; S Venkatesh, Director NCDC; Manoj Shrivastava, IRTS, ED, Indian Railways; Pramath Raj Sinha, First Dean of IBS, Hyderabad and founder Ashoka University; and Vivek Kumar Singh, IAS, Principal Secretary, Environment and Forest, Government of Bihar. Dr (Ms) Satbir Silas Bedi, IAS, Chairman, CBSE, was the chief guest at the final rounds conducted a day before.

 

“Crossword puzzles help students improve their vocabulary, reasoning, lateral thinking and analytical abilities. Deciphering solutions from the given clues helps young minds develop other cognitive skills, like making inferences, evaluating alternatives and drawing conclusion. Learning becomes so much more enjoyable as different mental faculties are challenged,” said Vivek Kumar Singh, the chief mentor of CCCC 2014.

 

“Most importantly, solving a crossword puzzle results in a sense of personal achievement, which is so vital for personality development. Crossword is also an interesting and effective educational tool, for students and teachers alike,” he added.

 

The Contest 2014 was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Jharkhand Hemant Soren on the July 16, 2014 at the Delhi Public School, SAIL Township, Ranchi.

 

The Central Broad of Secondary Education in collaboration with EXTRA-C established the CBSE Cryptic Crossword Contest in 2014. This contest was open to students of classes IX to XII of CBSE, CISCE and state board schools.
