PCER > Competitions > World Pulses Day

On 10th February, 2024, in observance of World Pulses Day, an E-Poster competition was organized for the second-year students of MES’s Pillai College of Education and Research, Chembur. This year, being the International Year of Millets designated by the United Nations, World Pulses Day, and the International Year of Millets share the common goals of promoting environmental sustainability, food security, and nutrition. The aim of this competition was to create awareness about the nutritional value and environmental impact of pulses. S. Y. B. Ed students created the posters in their practice teaching school groups. The E-posters were evaluated based on creativity, relevance, and impact. These E-posters were judged by Dr. Joan Lopes, from St. Teresa’s Institute of Education, Santacruz. The top three posters that best conveyed the message of the importance of pulses were selected as winners.

Following were the prize-winning practice teaching schools for their E-posters on World Pulses Day:
1st Prize: St. Sebastian High School
2nd Prize: SIES Group 2
3rd Prize: Chembur Karnataka High School Group 2
Best hand-made poster: AFAC Junior College.

This event, organized by PCER in Chembur on World Pulses Day alongside the International Year of Millets, contributed to achieving the aim of raising awareness about the nutritional benefits and environmental sustainability of pulses and millets. This, in turn, contributes to promoting healthier diets and achieving sustainable development goals.
