 Mode of Selecting Contestants:
Early in March of every year, letters are sent to parents informing them of the contest season, following which all the students in every class are encouraged to participate in the Selection Round of contests. Contest material for the Selection Round is provided to the students to ensure fairness and uniformity in judging, and three top performers are selected from each section of every grade. The three finalists from each section, making up a total of 18-21 depending on the number of sections  for each grade level, are then trained by teachers before school, during breaks or Art or Music classes.
Students are trained to serve as masters of ceremonies and Mechanics/Judging criteria readers during the contests. Other students are enlisted for intermission items to showcase a variety of talents during the contests, to which parents are invited. All contests are witnessed by all the students of respective grades, to promote learning by observing the best.
 
Venue for the Contests:
All the contests are held on the school campus during school hours.
 
Awards for Winners
On the day of contests, the school awards trophies/medals and certificates to the top three placers of all contests. All participants are awarded certificates of participation.
